World Mental Health Day 2016
The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day (WMHD) on 10 October every year as an opportunity to raise "awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health."
This year's theme, set by the World Federation for Mental Health, is psychological first aid and the support people can provide to those in distress.
We are showing our support by showcasing highly accessed journal articles, which you can read below, and relevant blog entries from our BMC Series Blog.
