World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health. Following our most recent survey carried out by YouGov the PRCA MENA aims to help support the PR Industry within the region.

PRCA MENA’s second Mental Health report will be launched on Sunday, 10th October.
