World Mental Health Day 2012
Today (10th October) is World Mental Health Day. This year the focus of World Mental Health Day is depression.
Depression is a condition that affects day-to-day life. It is more than feeling a bit low, or reacting to negative circumstances, it is not a weakness, a personality trait, or a choice of any sort, it is an illness.
This little video, released in time for WMHD, by the World Health Organisation and the incredibly talented author Matthew Johnstone, depicts the condition very well. Please do take a look and share:
“Medication can help some, and others might need a different approach altogether…
Keep a mood journal; getting your thoughts on paper can be cathartic and often insightful. Also keep track of the things that you have been grateful for.
The most important thing to remember is that no matter how bad it gets, if you take the right steps, talk to the right people, black dog days can and will pass.” - Matthew Johnstone
If you would like to try keeping a mood journal but don’t know where to start, visit our site MoodPanda.com, which is an online website and iPhone App that lets you do exactly that, with a support community around it to help pick you up when the black dog visits.

As of 2011, an estimated one million people per year die by suicide or “a death every 40 seconds or about 3,000 every day.” According to WHO there are twenty people who have a failed suicide attempt for every one that is successful, at a rate approximately one every three seconds.
Suicide is the “most common cause of death for people aged 15 – 24.”
More people die from suicide than from murder and war; it is the 13th leading cause of death worldwide.
According to WHO, suicide accounts for nearly half of all violent deaths in the world.Brian Mishara, IASP president, noted that, “more people kill themselves than die in all wars, terrorist acts and interpersonal violence combined.” The number of people who die by suicide is expected to reach 1.5 million per year by 2020.
