Mental Health Matters

From Malora’s Desk

October is globally recognised as Mental Health Awareness month, where people from around the world acknowledge and value this very important aspect of a person’s wellbeing. Mental health is important every single day, and not just for a single month of the year, but we will be joining the world in raising awareness throughout October.

During the month we will be sharing important information, self-affirmations, mindfulness tips, mental health videos and also welcome a panel of experts in the mental health space for an online discussion.

The green ribbon is the international symbol of mental health awareness. You can choose to wear a green ribbon in October to show your support for mental health matters.

I have been very impressed with the various regions that have already started promoting mental wellbeing and look forward to seeing everyone participate in challenging misconceptions and promoting the importance of their mental health.
