Did you know that today is World Health Day
? This year the World Health Organisation
have determined that the focus of this fantastic initiative will be on depression. According to mental health expert Dr. Happy, "Latest estimates state that more than 300 million people are currently living with depression, an increase of almost 20% since 2005. Due to factors such as stigma and lack of support, many of these people are quite simply not getting the help they need to live healthy and productive lives."
With these alarming statistics, we caught up with Dr. Happy to get his advice on a simple, practical strategy that we can apply (or help someone you love to apply) improve our moods, our lives and our overall mental health.
