What is World Mental Health Day and what is the 2019 theme?

The event takes place every year on October 10 and it aims to educate and raise awareness of mental health issues.

The day was set up by the World Federation for Mental Health and it was first celebrated in 1992.

Each year the event has a different theme and this year it’s psychological first aid and the support people can provide to others in distress.

Suicide prevention is the primary focus for the 2019 theme for World Mental Health Day.
