World Mental Health Day
At Liberty, we want to normalise having conversations about mental health because it is an issue we cannot afford to ignore.
This year’s campaign theme is ‘Mental Health for All’. It’s more important than ever that we to look after our mental health, and in some ways, COVID-19 has broken barriers and created more awareness on mental health. We must make sure that these conversations continue as we enter the “new normal”.
