Screen_Shot_2014-10-08_at_8.07.12_PMOctober 10th is designated as World Mental Health Day across the globe and in Belize it is no different. In this light, the Ministry of Health will observe this day with a national ceremony at the Welcome Resource Center in Belize City on Friday. The theme of this year’s World Mental Health Day is “Living with Schizophrenia” which seeks to focus attention on the burden of stigma that persons with this illness face on a daily basis. The Ministry’s release states that Schizophrenia is a serious but treatable mental illness that affects how a person thinks, feels, and acts. An affected person finds it difficult to tell the difference between real and imagined experiences, to think logically, express feelings or how to behave appropriately.

World Mental Health Day, launched in 1992, is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy. The aims of the annual observance are to create awareness of mental health concerns, encourage people with mental health problems to seek help and to promote

community participation in the various activities that are being held across the country.
