World Mental Health Day 2019: Theme, Significance and tips to stay healthy

The World Mental Health Day is celebrated every year on October 10 to raise awareness of mental health issues across the globe and promote good mental health for people worldwide.

It was first celebrated in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, a global mental health organization with members and contacts in more than 150 countries.

The theme for the 2019 World Mental Health Day is ‘suicide prevention’. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), one person dies by suicide across every 40 seconds. This means close to 800000 people lose their lives to suicide every year.

To avoid such thoughts and keep yourself mentally healthy, there are plenty of things you can do-

Eat healthy diet

Eating well isn’t just important for our bodies, but it’s also important for our minds. Certain mineral deficiencies, such as iron and vitamin B12 deficiencies, can give us a low mood. Try to eat a balanced diet. If you find you’re a particularly stressed or anxious person, you should try limiting or cutting out caffeine as this can make you feel jittery and anxious.

Sleeping schedule is important

Quality sleep is a crucial part of your mental health, but it can be especially hard to come by when you’re struggling with anxious or depressed thoughts. So do everything you can to try to quiet your thoughts before you get into bed.

Avoid alcohol, smoking and other drugs

Keep alcohol use to a minimum and avoid other drugs. Sometimes people use alcohol and other drugs to “self-medicate” but in reality, alcohol and other drugs only aggravate problems.

Do something you enjoy

Try to make time for doing the fun things you enjoy. If you like going for a walk, painting or a specific TV show, try to set aside time to enjoy yourself. If we don’t spend any time doing things we enjoy, we can become irritable and unhappy.

Do not hesitate to ask for help

Seeking help is a sign of strength — not a weakness. And it is important to remember that treatment is effective. People who get appropriate care can recover from mental illness and addiction and lead full, rewarding lives.
