World Mental Health Day is coming up on October 10th! With its start in 1992, the International Day is focused on raising awareness and education around social stigma and providing a space for open sharing of ideas, experiences, and resources directed at mental health issues. Mindful of this, the APECS Mental Health Resources Project Group would like to bring light to the Mental Health Database that is already available on the APECS Website. The Database provides easy access to information on the understanding of different issues, how to improve one's mental health, and how to know when to reach out for professional help; the resources are not limited to STEM fields and academics. Additionally, there is a short survey available regarding the use of Mental Health Apps, and we kindly ask you (and greatly appreciate it!) if you could spend about three minutes filling it out. You can find the survey here. Thank you! Please help us spread the word and raise awareness.
