Grab the Badge: How This Works
Welcome to the World Mental Health Day Blog Party.
Mental health or emotional health is a big component of our everyday life, yet it often is pushed down or minimized as something that doesn’t really matter. But it connects our thoughts, our feelings and behaviors together. When one of these things gets out of whack, so can our lives.
The World Health Organization (WHO) designated October 10 as World Mental Health Day to help spotlight the lack of care mental disorders often receive around the world. We hope to help increase awareness of these disorders and their treatment through hosting this blog party.
Post the “I’m Blogging for World Mental Health Day” badge on your blog and help proudly spread the word about the importance of mental health. Just copy and paste the badge code below into your post or blog:
How This Works
On October 10, we’ll update a new blog entry here with a list of all the blog posts related to increasing awareness or people’s understanding of treatment for mental health issues and concerns.
Your blog post can be about anything related to mental or emotional health, or its treatment. You can tell your story about how you first learned about your condition, and what kinds of challenges you faced to get treatment for it.
Tweet us @psychcentral to let us know about your blog entry, or email our special email address for this event: blogparty at psychcentral.com
