Don't Sleep on World Mental Health Day

Today is World Mental Health Day, this year's theme being mental health in the workplace.

International and domestic attitudes towards mental health vary, where many people around the world underestimate its importance. 

A study by the World Health Organization found that 2.4 million Americans live with schizophrenia, 6.1 million Americans have bipolar disorder, 16 million suffer from severe depression, and 42 million live with an anxiety disorder. However, only 41% of adults with a mental health condition received help and less than 50% of children 8-15 received mental health services.

The purpose of this holiday is raise awareness about mental health issues  and mobilize efforts to support mental health in a world where 90% of those who die by suicide have an underlying mental illness.
