World Mental Health Day

Greetings Fellow Breeders:

World Mental Health Day, observed annually on October 10th, is an event designed to promote worldwide mental health education, awareness and advocacy, particularly against the social stigma that many people with mental health issues face.

First organized by the World Federation for Mental Health in 1992, the event is now held globally and sees thousands of advocates and volunteers engage the public about mental health awareness and the impact of mental illnesses in people’s daily lives. Mental health awareness is represented by a green ribbon.

This year, particular importance is being paid to the mental health of young people around the world. We want to bring attention to the issues our youth and young adults are facing in our world today and begin the conversation around what they need in order to grow up healthy, happy and resilient.

What is mental health?

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Amaretto has always been supportive of awareness for different causes. As part of the Awareness Eye collection, the Mental Health Awareness eye dropped randomly from July 1 – July 31, 2013.

This eye does have the ability to pass and would make a great trait to add to any project created for dedication to someone you know with a mental health issue. 💚

Till next time….Be Aware & Happy Breeding!
