October 10th marks a significant day for Liberate – World Mental Health Day (WMHD).
This day is dedicated to raising awareness about mental health issues, reducing the stigma surrounding them, and promoting mental wellbeing. It’s a day when individuals, organizations, and communities come together to support those who are facing mental health challenges and to advocate for a world where mental health is prioritized.
In this blog post, we’ll explore the purpose of World Mental Health Day and share ways you can make a positive impact for yourself and loved ones.
World Mental Health Day was first observed in 1992 and is now recognized in over 150 countries. Its primary goal is to create awareness about mental health issues and mobilize efforts to support mental health. This day provides an opportunity to encourage open conversations about mental health, dispel myths, and provide resources to those in need.
At Liberate, we believe that taking care of your mental wellbeing should be a priority every day, and today, we’re celebrating it with some special resources just for you.
Stream these special on-demand classes. From breath exercises, to meditation and visualization, take this opportunity to exercise your mental muscles at your own pace.
One meaningful way to honor World Mental Health Day is by supporting organizations that are dedicated to improving mental health worldwide. Here are a few notable organizations you can consider donating to:
Mental Health America (MHA): MHA is a leading advocacy organization, committed to addressing the needs of individuals living with mental illness and promoting overall mental health.
NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness): NAMI is another organization that offers education, support, and advocacy for individuals and families affected by mental health conditions.
To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA): TWLOHA focuses on helping people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide.
In recognition of World Mental Health Day, we are pledging to donate a portion of the proceeds from our shop sales for the month of October to NAMI. By purchasing our journals and swag, you can support your own wellbeing and make a difference in the lives of those affected by mental health issues. Your contribution, no matter how small, can help fund research, increase awareness, and provide resources for individuals in need!
Thank you for reading! Remember, every action you take in support of mental health matters. Let’s make a difference this World Mental Health Day. ❣️
