World Mental Health Day 2021
World Mental Health Day 2021 is on Sunday 10th October 2021.
The year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’.
The WFMH President Dr Ingrid Daniels announced the theme which was chosen by a global vote including WFMH members, stakeholders, and supporters.

The article below will tell you more about the chosen theme for this year’s World Mental Health Day, what is mental health, ways to help improve your mental health, and finally, further support and guidance.
Some of the information from this article has come from the ‘Mental Health Foundation’ and ‘The World Mental Health Day 2021’ website. 

Theme for 2021 – Mental Health in an Unequal World 
The 2021 World Mental Health Day campaign ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’ will enable us all to focus on the issues that perpetuate mental health inequality locally and globally. The WFMH want to support civil societies to play an active role in tackling inequality in their local areas. They want to encourage researchers to share what they know about mental health inequality including ideas about how to tackle this.

The 2021 World Mental Health Day campaign provides an opportunity for us to come together and act together to highlight how inequality can be addressed to ensure people are able to enjoy good mental health.
