Letter: Please sign the pledge for World Mental Health Day 2017

Date published: 09 October 2017


Dear Editor, 

World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health.

It was founded as an international day for global education, empowerment education and advocacy for mental health.

The day provides an opportunity ‘for all stakeholders and service users working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide'.

This year's theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is mental health in the workplace.

I would like to take this opportunity to let readers of Rochdale Online know about the World Federation for Mental Health's Mentally Healthy Workplace Pledge for mental health in the workplace which reads:

I pledge our support for the mental health of all of our workforce. I will commit our team to doing our best at being proactive in promoting:
