    World Health Day Focuses On Talking About Depression

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Apr 7, 2017 11:36:08 AM

    Today marks World Health Day, an international initiative that draws attention to a specific health issue and celebrates the start of the World Health Organization (WHO). This year’s theme is "Depression: Let's Talk." It focuses on the importance of talking about depression as a crucial component of recovery, to help reduce the stigma around mental disorders, and to encourage more people to seek help.

    According to the WHO,

    “Depression affects people of all ages, from all walks of life, in all countries. It causes mental anguish and impacts on people’s ability to carry out even the simplest everyday tasks, with sometimes devastating consequences for relationships with family and friends and the ability to earn a living. At worst, depression can lead to suicide, now the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year olds.”

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Jul 22, 2016 10:21:31 AM
