Kids and Teen Yoga World Mental Health Day

How to Protect and Improve Your Child’s Mental Health

October 10 is World Mental Health Day. The overall objective is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilize efforts to support it. Here are some facts:

  • According to World Health Organization (WHO), one in eight people around the globe live with mental health conditions. The COVID-19 pandemic caused a 25% increase in the prevalence of anxiety and depression worldwide.


  • Young people are particularly affected by mental health issues. The WHO says almost one in seven adolescents aged 10 to 19 live with some form of mental health condition. Suicide is the fifth most prevalent cause of death in this age group - 45,800 die each year, one every 11 minutes.


  • Almost one in five 15-24-year-olds in a global survey for the WHO reported that they often felt depressed and had little interest in doing things. According to the UK Mental Health Foundation, half of mental health conditions are established by age 14 and 75% by age 24.
