World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health.
The Day provides an opportunity for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.
On September 11–12, 2018, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a workshop in Washington, DC, to discuss what is known, what is currently being done, and what needs to be done to identify and reduce suicide risk among people with serious mental illness in the United States.
The latest event from the National Prevention Week Webinar Series will take place on October 25, 2018, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. EDT.
The discussion will explore the relationship between the opioid use, overdose and suicide, with the hope that it will create opportunities for those in the prevention field to implement more effective strategies.
