It’s ‘Psychology Day’ at the United Nations & World Mental Health Day

Did you know that today is the United Nations’ official ‘psychology day’? No, neither did I until just now. According to the official press release this event is all about making UN officials aware of what psychologists have to offer. Two panels will discuss psychology in relation ‘Peace and Conflict Resolution’ and ‘Human Rights and the World of Work’.

Update: Oh, and I see it’s World Mental Health Day as well (via Providentia and Mad World).
