World Mental Heath Day 2020 - Move For Mental Health: Let's Invest

Tomorrow, October 10th, is World Mental Health Day. “This annual program was created as a way to bring more attention to mental illness and its effects on individual life, work, family and overall stability of communities and countries.”1 It was a day founded by the World Federation for Mental Health in 1992.

Each year, World Mental Health Day has a theme. In 2019, the theme focused on suicide prevention. This year, the theme is ‘Move for Mental Health: Let’s Invest.’

“World Mental Health Day is an opportunity for the world to come together and begin redressing the historic neglect of mental health,” said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization. “We are already seeing the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on people’s mental well-being, and this is just the beginning.

We've made it incredibly easy, and that ease of access has saved countless lives.

Think about your morning routine. In the span of an hour or two, you make countless choices before you even get out the door: “What time should I get up? Should I work out this morning or after work? Breakfast at home or on the way to the office? One shot or two in my espresso?”

It’s so easy to get caught up in the routine that we forget the incredible freedom to choose, well, whatever we want.

In India, there are women who aren’t so fortunate. They face a myriad of factors that rise against them, and work to keep them in a system of modern-day slavery. These factors include violence, poverty, limited education, corruption, and gender bias. Some of these women are forced into slavery. Some believe there’s nothing else for them. This is a lie that may seem obvious to you and me, but for some—the odds stacked against them seem insurmountable.
