World Mental Health Day - 10th October

The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on 10 October every year. This year's theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is suicide prevention.


Let family or friends know what's going on for you. They may be able to offer support and help keep you safe.


There's no right or wrong way to talk about suicidal feelings – starting the conversation is what's important.


Help and support is available right now if you need it. You don't have to struggle with difficult feelings alone.


Phone a helpline

These free helplines are there to help when you're feeling down or desperate.


Unless it says otherwise, they're open 24 hours a day, every day.
