"LawCare Champions" officially launched today to coincide with World Mental Health Day, a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma. HBO wants to change this by displaying "bumpers" before episodes which portray characters experiencing mental health issues, giving viewers information about accessing available support services.

World Mental Health Day, celebrated on October 10 each year, seeks to raise awareness about mental health issues around the world and mobilize efforts to tackle mental health issues.

Dr Kheshito Zhimo, Medical Superintendent, DH who spoke on the theme mentioned that mental health problems are present throughout the world, in all countries, races and people but "we should all come back to our community".

The following tweets from mental health organizations and advocates provide resources, tips, and motivation for helping others who are struggling and preventing suicide. "Through comedy we have the power to change the way people think and act and we will work diligently as a brand moving forward in order to drive mental health culture change".

"They don't know that mental illness is a disease which can have biological and genetic origins", said Dr He Yanling from the Shanghai Mental Health Center and a leading researcher on the survey. We don't have the numbers but we are certain many suffer from the condition quietly.

"The video games industry creates worlds for a huge number of vulnerable people, and it is our duty to help and support them", chair and trustee Leo Zullo said.

"This furthers our goal in improving the mental, physical and financial well-being of Canadians, and extends our long-standing commitment to mental championing-health issues in the workplace".
