Mental Health Ireland and our volunteers celebrate Mental Health Week every year in October. The week surrounds World Mental Health Day which takes place on the 10th October, celebrating a different theme each year, set by The World Federation for Mental Health.
The theme for World Mental Health Day 2020 is Mental Health for All: Greater Investment, Greater Access. Everyone, everywhere.
On World Mental Health Day and throughout the month of October, we’re asking people to reflect on how far they’ve come in the face of uncertainty and what they hope, not only for their own future but for others facing their own mental health challenges. We want to open up the discussion of how we can live in a world where positive mental health and recovery is possible for everyone.
We know circumstances are different this year, but that hasn’t stopped the incredible volunteers across our Mental Health Associations organising brilliant events and campaigns in communities across Ireland to promote mental health, wellbeing and recovery for everyone. Have a look at some of the events being hosted by the MHAs around Ireland to celebrate World Mental Health Day and mental health throughout October.
