World Mental Health Day takes place on October 10th and its aim is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world by bringing together efforts in support of mental health. On the day, organisations and individuals who are in charge of working on mental health issues, have an opportunity to come together and discuss their work and what needs to be done in order to improve mental health care worldwide and make it easily accessible for everyone.
The WFMH responds to mental health issues by working on the mission with its members in different countries, as well as conducting research at collaborating centres and universities, public education programs (such as World Mental Health Day), consultation to the United Nations (UN) and its specialised agencies.
In 2021, the World Federation for Mental Health President Dr Ingrid Daniels has announced the theme for World Mental Health Day which is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’.
