Just as it is vital to look after your physical health, it is critical to take care of your mental well-being. Mental peace is indispensable to avoiding depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues, which can also affect your overall well-being. To raise awareness and promote the importance of mental health, the WHO (World Health Organisation) celebrates World Mental Health Day every year on October 10th.  

Every year, the WHO and World Federation for Mental Health celebrate World Mental Health Day with a different theme, and for 2024, the theme is 'Make Mental Health and Well-Being for all a Global Priority.'
