WMHD Reports

2010

Another great WMHDAY campaign has come to pass and as always many advocates took their time, energy and resources to put on events around WMHDAY/October 10. We continue to be humbled by the remarkable events we are hearing about. Several have done what they could with no help and no resources and others have been able to secure special funding just for WMHDAY events, creating local, state, national and regional events. Your reports and web mentions show a wonderful variety of awareness events that continue to keep mental health on the minds of our Leaders and on the international health agenda. Change will happen, slowly but firmly, for the better as long as we continue to keep mental health in the spotlight. The WFMH would like to acknowledge everyone who held an event, who wrote an article, who mentioned WMHDAY on a webpage and all of those who proudly and publicly rallied together for unity, visibility, rights and recovery!

Thank you for your efforts!

Below you will find information on some of the events held around the world. We will continue to post events as time allows. Be sure to send us your report if you have not done so already!
