The World Federation for Mental Health created the day 24 years ago as a global platform for all nations to create awareness of mental health and issues associated with mental illness.

A spokesman from Therapy Dogs said: "Its a fact that spending time with a puppy or kitten reduces stress and have a great impact on our mental health thats why our pets are so popular".

Having good mental health can help us feel and function better, have more positive relationships with those around us, and deal with and manage hard times now and into the future. "Within families and communities, we often remain silenced by a shame that tells us that those with mental illness are somehow less worthy or at fault for their own suffering".

Health Minister Jackie Doyle-Price will lead the national effort and try to end the stigma which stops people from seeking help, Theresa May announced as she marked World Mental Health Day.

While people brag about their medical conditions like heart disease, surgeries, ICU stays and the like, they treat a mental health problem like a guilty secret to be pushed under the carpet. In addition to shining a light on mental illness, the week also offers an opportunity for behavioral health nurses to reflect on the impact they have in the lives of the people they serve.
