It’s such a honour to be asked by the Otalk girls to join the team, and help out hosting some sessions this year.

World mental health day is Saturday 10th Ocober so this Tuesday 6th of October we are going to explore this years theme ‘Dignity’

The World Health organisation (WHO) says ‘Thousands of people with mental health conditions around the world are deprived of their human rights. They are not only discriminated against, stigmatised and marginalised but are also subject to emotional and physical abuse in both mental health facilities and the community. Poor quality care due to a lack of qualified health professionals and dilapidated facilities leads to further violations.’

The twitter chat will explore what is meant by dignity, and what part we as occupational therapists have to play in ensuring those with mental health issues dignity is upheld.

For more information about World mental health day please look at theses websites.
