Tomorrow is World Health Day. Celebrated on April 7 of every year, World Health Day marks the founding of the World Health Organization by bringing attention to and mobilizing action around a particular, health-related area of concern. This year, World Health Day sheds a light on depression and how it indiscriminately impacts people around the world.
In support of World Health Day 2017, we’re featuring seven organizations working to promote mental health and wellbeing. Oh, and they’re hiring, too!
