It's Mental Health Week this week, and the dates are -

Mental Health Week 5 - 12 October 2014

So we're right in the middle of this special week.

Australia's ABC TV station has been doing a fantastic job of promoting good mental health but way of covering the topic regularly over this week on all their channels, using the slogan and campaign 'mentalas' talk.give.seek there is a feast of information and stories surrounding mental health.

It is also 'World Mental Health Day' in a couple of days. This event is repeated each year on the 10th of October 2014, and the overall objective of the day is to raise awareness about mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health. #WMHD2014

The day provides an opportunity for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.

The theme for World Mental Health Day 2014 #WMHD2014 is 'Living with Schizophrenia'.
