Archives for Blog Action Day
World Mental Health Day: Depression Every year on the 10th of October,* The World Health Organization joins in celebrating World Mental Health Day. Here at Psych Central we are (as a network) participating our 3rd Annual World Mental Health Day . This year World Mental Health Day: Mental Health and Older Adults.
Today my blog is taking part in a world wide awareness campaign that includes over 10,000 bloggers all writing about one subject... Water! Blog Action Day is an annual event that unites the world's bloggers in posting about the same issue on a single day – October 15. Last year, more than 13,000 bloggers participated from 152 countries. Our aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion about an important issue that impacts people around the world.
Over the last few years I've been a small part of the annual Blog-o-sphere voice for Blog Action Day. Below is the cartoon I did for the 2008 event. This year will be about Water and will be held on October 15th. If you blog then you can take part in this fun and educational day... I know this month we have a whole week for mental illness awareness from October 3-9th, but one extra day of awareness won't hurt. You can write a poem or drawing or anything you want about water. If you don't have a blog and way to be part of let me know and I might be able to add it to my post.
