Do you know - National Psychotherapy Day


National Psychotherapy Day was founded in 2012 by a group of professionals and students who thought it was important to combat misconceptions. The hope for the day was to raise awareness of the vital work that is done by therapists in helping the one in four people who suffer from mental illness, as well as those with other types of emotional problems.

The world has come very far on the topic of mental health since the days, thousands of years ago, when it was believed that evil spirits were the cause of mental illness, and the cure was sometimes to drill holes in the skull. Thankfully, this is no longer the protocol!

But the modern world is still working hard to fight against the stigma and negativity that can come for those who choose to get help and improve their mental health. That’s where National Psychotherapy comes into play.
