This Saturday is World Mental Health Day, a day recognised on the 10th October every year not only by The World Health Organisation but also by many other people and organisations who are working to raise awareness of mental health issues. This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is ‘Mental Health for All’.

Throughout World Mental Health Day we will be sharing advice, tips and support for your mental health across our social media channels – make sure you are following us @Racingwelfare.
