World Teen Mental Wellness Day- march 2, 2022 Activities, History, Celebration

Mental Wellness Day is a day that honors the importance of mental health and well-being. The purpose of Mental Health Day is to take time out of our busy lives to stop, reflect, and focus on ourselves – something we often do not find the time for in our hectic schedules. For this very reason, Mental Health Day has been recognized internationally as an opportunity to take care of ourselves mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

This blog post will highlight World Teen Mental Wellness Day (March 2nd), its history, what activities are available during this day around the world; how it became an international celebration; why you should participate in these events; and how organizations can use this day to promote their own cause or event.

One of the first recognized days in celebrating mental health was Mental Health Week – one week during May, recognized by Congress to bring attention to “the need for mental hygiene education among all young people” (March). It has since evolved into a month-long celebration that occurs annually around the world in May each year.

History Of World Teen Mental Wellness Day

On March 2nd, World Teen Mental Wellness Day aims to normalize conversations and dismantle stigmas around teen mental health issues. This is a day where we can start having open discussions about how important it is for teens in this country to feel like they’re able to talk about what’s going on with their minds without fear or judgment from others around them; because after all isn’t true self-expression only possible when you share your thoughts freely?

We hope that by raising awareness through education as well as encouraging more individuals within society at large take part too – whether its discussion panels during conferences/workshops so everyone has an opportunity to participate together roundtable-style (or one person representing various groups), Facebook live videos set up specifically just for this purpose to share your voice, or even hosting an event where friends can gather together and talk about these things so everyone has the opportunity to take part in discussions – we hope that by allowing ourselves time out of our busy lives during Mental Health Day (and beyond) will contribute towards making sure all teens feel like they matter.

Why Should We Participate In Mental Wellness Day

There are a few key reasons why we think everyone should participate in World Teen Mental Health Day. First, it’s important that teens feel like they can speak up about what’s going on with their brains; because there is absolutely no shame around needing to take care of your mental health and well-being.

Second, it’s important that teens feel like they have someone to talk with about what’s going on in their minds without fear of judgment or stigma. You might not know this but many people do not seek professional help specifically because of the stigma still attached to mental health. We need to start making everyone feel comfortable speaking up and out about what’s on their minds.

Third, it’s important that teens feel like they have someone who will listen to them without judgment or stigma so they can properly express themselves and talk about what’s going on in his/her life. We all know how lonely this world can be at times, but we also understand the feeling of not wanting to bother anyone else with what’s going on in our heads.

In the generation that is growing up in the United States, Gen Z has been labeled as being at risk for poor mental health. The 2016 report by American Psychology Association shows how this could potentially be true with 64 percent believing they want to achieve a healthier lifestyle overall including stronger self-care routines to make themselves happier people. Gen Z has shown that they are more aware than ever of their mental health, not only in the United States but worldwide.

So what does this all mean?

By taking part in World Teen Mental Health Day, we can help normalize conversations around teen mental health issues and hopefully get rid of stigmas that might still exist in the process. We can help all teens feel like they matter and have someone to talk with when things get tough. And most importantly, we can show them how important it is for everyone to take part so young people across any country aren’t afraid or ashamed about what’s going on inside their heads – and feel like they matter more than ever.
