World Mental Health Day is October 10, 2009.
Mental illnesses do not discriminate according to culture or age, and an individual’s mental health is an integral aspect of overall health and wellbeing.
The 2009 World Mental Health Day is a global awareness campaign which addresses the continuing need to make mental health issues a global priority.
Come on girl, brush yourself down
Cast aside this darkness
‘Action speaks louder than words’
Now is the time to advance
Not ponder, or doubt, or look back
Problems can be dealt with
And that you intend to do
Now girl, pull yourself from the depths
Start to live again
And laugh once more
Remember what they say…..
‘You’ are your harshest critic
Of every thought and word and deed
Be kind to yourself
And then, and only then
Be kind to those who deserve it more
