SMHF 2018

World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health. Mental Health is a person’s psychological – social wellbeing. This includes how we manage stress, emotions, actions, thinking, learning and relating to people.
