The theme of 2022’s World Mental Health Day, set by the World Federation for Mental Health, is ‘Make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority’.
For over 70 years, The Mental Health Foundation has been working to ensure that mental health is treated on a par with physical health. They say, “Mental health problems exist in our lives, families, workplaces, and communities, impacting everyone. We must do as much as possible to prevent mental ill-health – as individuals and as a society. We will continue to call on national and local governments to prioritise reducing the factors known to pose a risk to people’s mental health, enhancing those known to protect it and creating the conditions needed for people to thrive”.
World Mental Health Day is a fantastic opportunity to talk openly about mental health in general, how we are feeling and how sharing a problem can help spread the burden that some of us feel.
It’s great to see more schools and colleges recognising this day as this provides a vehicle to have more conversations.
We would love to know how Pilates impacts or helps your mental health.
