1 in 5 Australians are affected by mental illness, yet many don’t seek help because of stigma. World Mental Health Day – October 10 — is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy. It is an initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health to raise public awareness of mental health issues worldwide. 

World Alzheimer's Day, September 21st of each year, is a day on which Alzheimer's organizations around the world concentrate their efforts on raising awareness about Alzheimer's and dementia and is part of World Alzheimer's Month. This year's focus is stigma. 2 out of every 3 people globally believe there is little or no understanding of dementia in their countries.

World Alzheimer's Day, September 21st of each year, is a day on which Alzheimer's organizations around the world concentrate their efforts on raising awareness about Alzheimer's and dementia (a form of Alzheimer's) and is part of World Alzheimer's Month. Last week we published a blog describing this year's theme which tied in with Australia's Dementia Action Week.

In this week's blog we continue the education around Alzheimer's and Dementia and our attention is drawn to the dangers of wandering by people suffering from Alzheimer's and Dementia.
