World Mental Health Day 2019: “Just Ask” campaign
07 October 2019
World Mental Health Day is 10th October. This year the theme is suicide prevention.
According to the World Health Organisation, more than 800,000 people die by suicide a year across the globe, making it the principal cause of death among people fifteen to twenty-nine years old.
Research has shown that simply asking someone how they are feeling can make all the difference.
Wirral CAMHS and other organisations are running a “Just Ask” campaign to raise awareness. To take part, do something arts-based (a picture, photograph, dance, drama… whatever you like) and take a picture.
Send this to cwp.WirralPMHW@nhs.net and they will build you photograph into a montage that will be presented in Children’s Mental Health Week in February 2020.
World Mental Health Day is run by the World Mental Health Federation. Click here to visit their website.
