October each year is officially designated as Mental Health Month. October 10th is Mental Health Day, during which a host of events take place to acknowledge this most significant of community issues. The focus is firmly on reducing the stigma surrounding mental health and publicising the work being done to support those affected by mental illness. The core message is to maintain a connection with family, friends, colleagues and to be aware if they seem to be struggling with their mental wellness. Simply asking RU OK can potentially prevent a suicide.
