Next week on October 10th, we’re celebrating World Mental Health Day. If you're a blogger, we'd like you to join us for our 6th annual blog party. World Mental Health Day is promoted by the World Health Organization to help raise awareness about mental health issues. The day promotes open discussion of mental disorders, and what the world’s governments and health organizations are doing in prevention, promotion and treatment services. This year's theme is psychological first-aid, but you're welcomed to blog on any topic in mental health you'd like. This year, we’re inviting you to join us for the 6th annual blog party on Monday, October 10. Mental health is important to all of us, and we need your help to spread that message! So how do you join in on the party?
