World Mental Health Month takes place this October with World Mental Health Day on Sunday October 10th. The goal of World Mental Health Day is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health
This year’s theme is ‘’Mental Health in an Unequal World’. Let that sink in.
This theme highlights that access to mental health services remains unequal, with between 75% to 95% of people with mental health challenges in low- and middle-income countries unable to access mental health services at all.
Let that sink in. There are some of us living in the world who cannot access the support we need, when we need it, leaving basic human needs unmet.
