This year’s theme for Mental Health Month is - Risky business. It's about educating the public on habits and behaviors that could increase the risk of developing or increases mental health symptoms. Risky behaviors include drug misuse, excessive spending, alcohol use, gaming addiction and sexual addiction. Raising awareness for these behaviors help individuals to detect early warning signs and to provide early prevention.
