World Mental Health Day: 10 October 2022

October 10, 2022 | by Chris Boyd


This World Mental Health Day, we’re supporting Mind in the fight for mental health.  Sometimes, finding the words to say how we feel is tough. You can feel like you’re talking another language – one no one else understands. But Mind do.

That’s why, this World Mental Health Day, Mind are showing the different ways people talk about their experiences.  Through spoken word, people have shared their mental health stories.

Mind wants these stories to change the way we think and speak about mental health problems. To encourage people to reach out for support, whatever their experience of mental health.

We all need support on our mental health journey. That’s why we’re getting involved this World Mental Health Day – to share the stories, spread the word, fundraise, and make change happen.

The stories

At the heart of MINDS campaign are the stories of two of Minds media volunteers, Rohan and Mel. Both Rohan and Mel have worked closely with an artist to bring their stories to life through spoken word. Hear their stories below:
