World Mental Health Day

Posted by Charlotte Miller on

Today - World Mental Health Day – is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy, and We Feed You are helping spread the word. Our promise is to help reduce stigma around mental illness to make way for more people to seek help.

The way we see it at WFY headquarters, you can’t tell a mentally well person from a mentally ill person, just by looking at them. And with 1 in 5 Australians experiencing mental illness, chances are you could be sitting in the same room as one of them. It’s likely to be people in your family, people you work with and those in your friendship circle. And it’s nothing to be ashamed of. 

Having mental health issues doesn’t mean you’re ‘scary’, ‘incompetent’, ‘weak’ or ‘hopeless’ as we are often conditioned to believe. Let’s support people who are struggling with anxiety, depression and other mental health issues, by bringing mental health out from the shadows and into everyday conversations.

It’s time to look at mental illness in a different light – a positive light. You can head to and make your own promise for world mental health day.
