World Mental Health Day - 10 October 2023

Tuesday (10 October) is World Mental Health Day – a reminder of the importance of prioritising and looking after our mental health as much as our physical health
This year’s theme, ‘Mental health is a universal human right’, promotes the significance of mental health with the aim of helping you to learn how to look after yours and to get help if you are struggling.  
If you feel you need support, or know someone who might, you can visit the emotional wellbeing section of Camden Rise or check out the following links to free and confidential resources:
