International Mental Health Day – 10 October 2022

October 2022

The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on 10 October every year.

The theme of 2022’s World Mental Health Day, set by the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH), is ‘Make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority’.

For over 70 years, WGMH been working to make sure that mental health is treated on a par with physical health. Mental health problems exist in our lives, families, workplaces and communities, impacting everyone. We need to do as much as possible to prevent mental ill-health – as individuals and as a society. We will continue to call on national and local government to prioritise reducing the factors known to pose a risk to people’s mental health, enhancing those known to protect it and creating the conditions needed for people to thrive.

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.

Mental Health Foundation

Mental Health Foundation works towards good mental health for all; as everyone knows, prevention is better than cure. Everything it does is focused on protecting people’s mental health.

Its work involves rigorous research and practical projects to identify what’s most helpful, public information that empowers people to look after their mental health and influencing work to move policies in the right direction.

Some communities are at higher risk of mental health problems due to the social, economic, and environmental circumstances they find themselves in. Much of its work challenges these mental health inequalities by helping those at the greatest risk.
