On 10 October 2019, every year, the World Mental Health Day is celebrated to raise awareness about mental health issues around the world and to foster efforts in support of mental health. This year the main theme of the World Mental Health Day is suicide prevention.
Our section, represented by the Section Chair Marco Sarchiapone, participated in drafting the EPA statement for both the World Suicide Prevention Day and the World Mental Health Day 2019. These statements will be circulated to the NPAs, which will be invited to inform the EPA offices about their activities and initiatives for October 10th, in order to develop a communication strategy to raise visibility and support them.
