World Mental Health Day 2010


Sunday 10th October is World Mental Health Day. This year’s theme refers to the relationship between mental health and chronic physical illnesses.

Quite appropriately, Time for Change are running a ‘Get Moving 2010’ programme of events focusing on, quite obviously, on physical exercise.

Time for Change have a number of events over the weekend and at least in London, (ok, accuse me of parochialism all you like!) the weather forecast is looking good for Sunday.

I may well take myself over to Islington where a programme of events is running through the day on Upper Street, across the road from Angel Station.

It is a lovely place to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon in London and all the more so to support the campaign to raise awareness and challenge the stigma associated with mental illness.
