World Mental Health Day 2019

Since 1992, the World Federation for Mental Health has recognised World Mental Health Day on 10 October, as an opportunity “to raise global awareness of mental health issues and to stimulate advocacy”. This year the theme is Suicide Prevention. As stated by the President of WFMH, Alberto Trimboli, “[s]uicide is a global public health problem that deserves the attention of all the actors in the field of mental health, including scientific and professional organizations, organizations for mental health users and their families, and universities.”
