About this event

World Mental Health Day in recognised on 10th October each year. 

Mental health problems can affect anyone, any day of the year, but this is a great day to show your support for better mental health and start looking after your own wellbeing. 

For this year’s World Mental Health Day the 'Better Health - Every Mind Matters' campaign is focusing on “What works for me”, demonstrating how different actions can help us with our mental wellbeing, with a variety of simple tips offered by the NHS endorsed Mind Plan quiz that shows ‘there are little things we can all do to look after our mental health’.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on people’s mental health. Some groups, including health and other frontline workers, students, people living alone, and those with pre-existing mental health conditions, have been particularly affected. And services for mental, neurological and substance use disorders have been significantly disrupted.

Yet there is cause for optimism. During the World Health Assembly in May 2021, governments from around the world recognised the need to scale up quality mental health services at all levels. And some countries have found new ways of providing mental health care to their populations.
