World Mental Health Day 2022
World Mental Health Day is marked every year on 10th October to raise awareness about mental health around the world and to support those experiencing mental health issues. World Mental Health Day is an international day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma.
Since 2013, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has organised a global campaign for World Mental Health Day. the theme is ‘Make mental health for all a global priority”. Themes are selected to reflect the most pressing issues around mental health facing people worldwide.
WHO shared: “Stigma and discrimination continue to be a barrier to social inclusion and access to the right care; importantly, we can all play our part in increasing awareness about which preventive mental health interventions work and World Mental Health Day is an opportunity to do that collectively. We envision a world in which mental health is valued, promoted and protected; where everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy mental health and to exercise their human rights; and where everyone can access the mental health care they need.”
World Mental Health Day is also a chance to talk about mental health in general, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to talk about things and get help if you are struggling. This day is a prompt for us to try to protect and improve our mental health. It is an opportunity to talk openly about how we are feeling and a reminder to reach out if you are struggling. On World Mental Health Day we are all encouraged to take time out to reflect on our lives, and where we might implement some positive habits.
