Did you know that one in four people worldwide suffer from a mental or neurological disorder at some point in their lives?

Today is World Mental Health Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health.

Organized by The World Health Organization (WHO), this year’s theme is “dignity in mental health” and aims to dissolve the stigma that still surrounds mental illness today.
