Today is the International Day for global mental health awareness. This holiday was first celebrated in 1992 at the World Federation for Mental Health; a global mental health organization with members in more than 150 countries. Here are some ideas you can post on your channel:
- Let your audience know that you are thinking of them. The most important thing you can do for someone with a mental illness is to let them know you are there for them.
- Share the number and place where someone can reach out for help if they need it. Having access to this information can save someone's life.
- If you are in the medical or fitness industry, you can talk about ways someone with mental illness can help themselves in a time of crisis. Offering a routine someone can do at home can distract their head from the issue that is plaguing their mind at the moment.
- Donate to a cause that is fighting mental illness and share their website.
