World Mental Health Day

Posted on

The Law Society of Saskatchewan invites you to mark your calendars in honour of World Mental Health Day – Monday, October 10th

Mental illness is not an issue that lawyers generally talk about openly.  Risk and fear of stigma prevent many from seeking help.  We know that mental health issues like depression, anxiety and addiction can occur frequently in the legal profession where dealing with difficult situations and stress are part of the daily routine.

World Mental Health Day is observed on October 10th every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health.

The Day provides an opportunity for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.  Please visit World Health Organization’s website for more about this year’s campaign.
