World Mental Health Day
World Mental Health Day takes place on the 10th October every year. First launched in 1992, the day is dedicated to educate, raise awareness and fight against the social stigma surrounding mental health, with the ultimate aim of making sure mental health is treated the same as physical health.
The theme for 2022 is ‘Make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority’.
