Altura Learning supports World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day is an international campaign organised each year in October for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma.

The statistics speak for themselves : one in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide. At Altura Learning we truly believe that learning improves the quality of care we provide to those we care for.

As part of our support, we are pleased to share our video “Mental Health: Living with a Condition” – free of charge for the care sector for one week.
