October 10th marks World Mental Health Day, an awareness campaign launched in 1992 and has been celebrated annually ever since. World Mental Health Day provides the opportunity to raise awareness about global mental health issues and creates the opportunity for people to call for action and advocate for change in the mental health system.
The theme for Mental Health Day 2022 is ‘Mental Health & Wellbeing for All is a Global Priority’. The Covid-19 pandemic was a large factor in what challenged many people's mental health and this year's theme speaks to this, highlighting the importance of looking after our mental health, and making help accessible for everyone. World Mental Health Day provides the opportunity to reconnect and invest, promote, and improve mental health awareness for all.
