Monday 10 October, being World Mental Health Day, we will be joining others around the world to observe this year’s World Mental Health Day, through campaign and calling for severe mental illness to be a global priority.
We know that more people are experiencing poor mental health because of the rising cost of living. We also know that this disproportionately affects people living with severe mental illness.
Every year, events and activities on World Mental Health Day include conferences, seminars, and discussion forums; formulating new policies for suicide prevention; the use of media as a tool for promoting awareness; memorial ceremonies to remember those who lost the battle to mental illness; educating adolescents on suicide and who to reach out to if needed; and establishing support groups and special facility centers as resources for depression and suicide awareness and treatment.
The 3-day virtual conference with the theme, Make Mental Health and Wellbeing for All a Global Priority is scheduled to hold on October 10-12,2022.
Our aim through collaborative effort is to bring together all relevant stakeholders, changemakers, and mental health advocates to unite diverse suggestions and solutions that bring about change in the global mental health scenario.
We have gone out to source for emotional intelligence/management experts, psychiatrist, psychologist, health practitioners, entrepreneurs, NLP practitioners, educators, life coaches, and thought leaders from different walks of life to share their experiences, thoughts and intellectual prowess on the theme of this year’s World Mental Health Day.
Being an advocate of inclusive education, we have since partner with Beracahs International Foundation of Deaf Women to interpret each part of the program in Nigeria and America sign language.
Watch this space as I share more information on the conference and unveil speakers for each day.
