World Mental Health Day - Sunday 10th October 2021

Sunday 10th October is… World Mental Health Day! 

The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on 10th October every year. This year's theme set by the World Federation is 'Mental Health in an Unequal World'.

This theme, chosen for 2021, will highlight that access to mental health services remains unequal, with between 75% to 95% of people with mental disorders in low- and middle-income countries unable to access mental health services at all, and access in high income countries is not much better.

The 2021 World Mental Health Day campaign provides an opportunity for us to come together and act together to highlight how inequality can be addressed to ensure people are able to enjoy good mental health.

We want to re-iterate, it is ok to not be ok. If you need to speak to someone, do, whether it be a friend, family member, colleague, or Samaritans on 116 123 💞
