October 10, 2017

Mental health problems affects millions of people in the world. Matt & Ramona's Producer Bandy recently came forward about his struggles with mental health and his journey to mental wellness. Read more about that here. 

Today is World Mental Health Day. The goal is to raise awareness of mental health issues and raise efforts for mental health treatment.

This year's theme is mental health in the workplace and how the office can be improved to help mental health and well being.
Worldwide, more than 300 million people suffer from depression and 260 million suffer from some sort of anxiety disorder. The World Health Organization's study said that these conditions cause $1 trillion of lost productivity every year.

Only 41 percent of adults seek treatment and less than 50 percent of children 8-15 years old get mental health services.
