World Mental Health Day is 10 October 2019. It is a day for global mental health education, awareness raising and advocacy. Mental Health Australia is leading a promotion campaign called “Do You See What I See?” which challenges perceptions about mental illness in Australia in an effort to reduce stigma and make way for more people to seek the help and support they deserve. Visit their website for more information here.
The reality is the vast majority of people affected by mental illness are able to lead independent and contributing lives in our community, with the right treatment and support.
Book an appointment to discuss your mental health with one of our caring doctors at Floreat Medical.
