Mental Health for All! Greater Investment–Greater Access.

by Public Health Update

World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year. It was first observed on 10 October 1992 as an annual activity of the World Federation for Mental Health aimed at promoting mental health advocacy and educating the public on relevant issues.

World Mental Health Day raises awareness within the global community about the mental health challenges, gaps and priorities through collaborative and unifying voices aimed at taking action, addressing and creating lasting change in a world where we need to restore the dignity of all living with mental health needs.

World Mental Health Day is simply not a one day event and provides us with the opportunity and advantage to hold the attention of governments, donors, policy-makers and all stakeholders to ensure action for greater investment in mental health.

Theme 2020

This year’s coronavirus pandemic has affected everybody and highlighted how poorly prepared many nation states are to address mental health wellbeing during a time of global crisis. This year’s World Mental Health Day theme ‘Mental health for all: greater investment – greater access’

Mental health is a human right – it’s time that mental health is available for all. Quality, accessible primary health care is the foundation for universal health coverage and is urgently required as the world grapples with the current health emergency.

Mental health a reality for all – for everyone, everywhere. The time for actions is now.
