365 iT SOLUTIONS is proud to support World Mental Health Day on October 10.
World Mental Health Day is marked every year on October 10. Its goal is to raise awareness about mental health issues as well as advocating for increased support.
Half of all mental illnesses begin by the age of 14. We must commit to providing mental health support from an early age to help prevent mental distress and illness among adolescents and young adults.
According to the World Health Organization, one person dies by suicide every 40 seconds.
The previous World Mental Health Day, they focused on suicide prevention.
This year on World Mental Health Day, they are encouraging people to take 40 seconds of action to improve awareness, reduce stigma associated with suicide, and provide support to people who may be struggling.
