World Mental Health Day took place on Tuesday 10 October this year. The awareness day celebrated its 25th year since its inception by the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) in 1992.

This year’s theme was ‘mental health in the work place’ and in order to support the event, sports are encouraged to think about the mental health of their staff and volunteers, as well as their young athletes.

How you can get involved:

  • raise awareness on social media by using #WorldMentalHealthDay 
  • sign the WFMH pledge 
  • start a conversation in your club or organisation about mental health
