World Mental Health Day, a programme of the World Federation for Mental Health, was observed for the first time on 10 October 1992. The goal is to help raise mental health awareness. Each of us can make a contribution to ensure that people dealing with problems concerning mental health can live better lives with dignity.
The world is experiencing the unprecedented impact of the current global health emergency due to COVID-19 that has also impacted on the mental health of millions of people. The levels of anxiety, fear, isolation, social distancing and restrictions, uncertainty and emotional distress experienced have become widespread as the world struggles to bring the virus under control and to find solutions. This year's theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is Mental Health for All: Greater Investment - Greater Access
