April 7 of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization.
Over the past 50 years this has brought to light important health issues such as mental health, maternal and child care, and climate change. The celebration is marked by activities which extend beyond the day itself and serves as an opportunity to focus worldwide attention on these important aspects of global health.
when is world health day observed in every year?
World Health Day is celebrated every year on 7th April, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization (WHO).
World Mental Health Day questions?
Yes I know about it. I heard about this from a friend, who was informed by a Mental Health program she is involved in.
I have also been receiving emails from my University promoting awareness and advertising activities. They are pretty switched on about informing students of community and global events, which is great. I don't watch much T.V. so I can't tell you if there has been any ads about it.
I also haven't seen allot in the local paper which is a shame. I'm in a low income area and we do have allot of serious issues involving our mental health facilities. There are limited mental health worker who want to work in the local clinics because its a bit of a rough area. The hospital psychiatric wards in this area have a very bad reputation.
Actually...I just did a mini survey in my home asking who know about it...and no one did :-( Now I think about it, apart from my friend in the mental health program, I haven't heard anyone else talk about. So I guess it goes down the bottom on the list of peoples priories.
So you do make a good point, unless your personally involved in the mental health community how else will you get any awareness?
Oh and I'm in Melbourne, Australia.
