- Town encourage fans to speak up
- World Mental Health Day is today, Monday 10 October
- Full list of local Mental Health Resources available below
Huddersfield Town remind supporters of our local mental health resources this World Mental Health Day.
It is important that we continue to speak about our mental health, as there is a chance either you or somebody you know will struggle with mental health related problems at some point during your life.
One in four people will experience a mental health problem of some kind each year in England, and one in six people will report experiencing a common mental health problem, such as anxiety and depression, in any given week in England.
Due to the stigma attached to suffering with your mental health, it is often difficult to know who you can talk to or where the best place to turn is and although this has improved in recent years and mental health awareness has risen, there are still people who don’t yet feel comfortable enough to ask for help when they need it the most.
The most important thing we can do is promote speaking up and speaking out – remember that it’s okay to talk, and it Is always helpful to make yourself available to listen.
This year, the World Mental Health Day theme is ‘Make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority.’
For over 70 years, the World Health Organisation has been working to make sure that mental health is treated on a par with physical health. Mental health problems exist in our lives, families, workplaces, and communities – impacting everyone. We need to do as much as possible to prevent mental ill-health as individuals and as a society.
World Mental Health Day is a chance to talk about mental health in general, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to talk about things and get help if you are struggling.
