World Mental Health Day 2015
- 13 October 2015
'Dignity' was the theme for this year's World Mental Health Day. The Department of Psychiatry launched a Twitter campaign to support dignity in mental health in the week running up to the day on Saturday 10 October.
In a series of postcards, some of the department's leading PI's expressed what dignity meant to them, with particular relevance to their fields.
Using the hashtags #dignity and #WMHD2015 the statements were Retweeted and favoured hundreds of times, and helped to spread positive messages for a day which acknowledges the on-going need for greater understanding and treatment of mental health issues.
