World Mental Health Day (10th October) is an international event and is a great opportunity to raise public awareness about mental health, celebrate its positive aspects and reduce the stigma of mental health problems.

In Manchester we have come together each year to celebrate World Mental Health Day through events, campaigns and the media. The theme for this year's campaign is the benefits and impact of food on mental health under the slogan "
Eat Yourself Happy-improve your mood with food".

As the day falls within the month of Ramadan, the fasting season for Muslims, the main campaign week in Manchester is 7th - 13th November, so everyone can be included in the celebrations. Several organisations are holding events and activities and this is throughout September to November. Look out for our stall on food and mood at St Anne's Square on 10th October, 10am-5pm, as part of the Manchester Food and Drink Festival activities.

On the day we will be launching a new self help "food and mood" guide. Open the link to our brochure for details about events and activities in Manchester. Also listed are events in Sale and Stockport.
