Celebrating Mental Health Day

October 10th is World Mental Health Day!

Stigma and discrimination continue to be barriers to social inclusion and access to the right care. We can all play a part in decreasing stigma about mental health and connecting people to information and resources they need to thrive. This is the primary goal of Mental Health Matters of Washington:

We envision a world in which mental health is valued, promoted and protected; where everyone has an equal opportunity to flourish and to exercise their human rights; and where everyone can access the mental health care they need.
