Let’s celebrate Mental Health Day

7 Oct , 2015  

Let’s celebrate Mental Health Day! Like last years Agora Aveiro is preparing an activity for this important Day that is celebrated worldwide. This time, we want to write love letters to ourselves and we invite you to do the same! It’s going to happen on October 10th, in Forum in Aveiro.

You just need to appear and bring positive attitude!

Why are we doing this? We would like to promote the importance of the dignity in mental health. This is this year’s motto of the Day. Did you know that approximately 1 in 4 people live with a mental illness worldwide? And that simply by learning and talking more about mental health you could help millions of people around the world? This is the message behind this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW, October 5th-11th), which also encompasses this Saturday’s World Mental Health Day (WMHD, October 10th) and that we will celebrate in Forum, Aveiro.

Each year, MHAW presents the World Federation for Mental Health’s theme of the year, this year its ‘Dignity in Mental Health.’ To help make dignity in mental health a reality, together we can ensure that mental health problems are better understood, and importantly, are absolutely nothing to be ashamed of!

So how can you get involved in Mental Health Awareness Week and World Mental Health Day? Join us at our event in Forum Aveiro! Here is more information.
