This World Mental Health Day, MHFA England is calling on everyone to ‘Take 10 Together’. Check in on someone  - a friend, a family member, a colleague or student – and have a meaningful 10 minute conversation with them about their mental health and wellbeing.

‘Take 10 Together’ seeks to help people take their first step on the journey of improving their mental wellbeing and that of others around them, as well as demonstrating the importance of Mental Health First Aid.

This World Mental Health Day, we should all Take 10 Together because: 
  • 10 million people in the UK will experience a mental health issue each year
  • 10% of children aged 5 to 16 have a diagnosable mental health issue
  • MHFA England has a goal to train 1 in 10 of the population
  • Make a difference on 10.10.16
The theme of this year’s World Mental Health Day on Monday 10 October is ‘psychological and mental health first aid for all’ with the aim of making Mental Health First Aid a global priority on a par with physical first aid. 

Across the world, in 24 countries, 1 million people have been trained in Mental Health First Aid skills. MHFA England has trained over 140,000 of these people and our mission is to train 1 in 10 of England's population.
