The world will celebrate World Mental Health Day on October 10 but the UN also observes this entire month as World Mental Health Month. However, it is important to remember that the conversation shouldn’t be limited to this period but has to be had throughout the year, and not only with adults but also children

Every year, the United Nations celebrates World Mental Health Month in October. Globally, World Mental Health Day is celebrated on October 10. When we talk about mental health, one can’t ignore the focus the last two years of the Covid-19 pandemic has put on one’s mental health and its resilience in difficult times. This year, the theme is ‘Make mental health & well-being for all a global priority’. While we talk about mental health of adults, it is important to remember that it even impacts children. One of the many reasons for the latter is bullying that can stay with them even in their adult life.
