World Mental Health Day 2022

One person in four will be affected by a mental health disorder at some stage of their lives. For this reason we must look at ways of developing a healthy mind and building positive emotions. It is also vital that governments worldwide invest in mental health to ensure the wellbeing of their citizens.

What is World Mental Health Day?

World Mental Health Day is an event organised by the World Federation for Mental Health. The aim of this day is to raise awareness of mental health and mental health disorders and to promote a positive mental attitude.

It occurs every year on 10th October and is supported by people all around the world. The focus is on raising awareness of mental health conditions and gaining more help and support for those coping with a mental illness. The theme for World Mental Health Day 2021 is: ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World. Together We Can Make a Difference’.

The purpose of this year’s theme is to highlight the inequality in accessing mental health services around the world. Approximately one in four adults and one in ten children have a mental health issue including stress, anxiety, depression and suicidal ideation. Many people throughout the world do not receive the mental health treatment they need mainly due to the lack of investment in mental health conditions.

All Resources has produced a number of resource packs which cover a variety of topics including depression and suicide:
