World Mental Health Day 2021 – ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’
09 Oct 21
October 10th is World Mental Health Day, a day that gives us all a chance to take a moment to think about how important good mental health and wellbeing is for ourselves, our families, friends, and our wider community.
This year’s worldwide theme is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’, which aims to spotlight the work there is still to do within the mental health field to ensure sure that everyone, regardless of their race, gender, sexuality, religion or social status, has access to the care they need and deserve.
“We work incredibly hard at the Trust to support everyone who needs us, so for us World Mental Health Day provides the opportunity to reflect upon what we do well and also look to see if there are things we could do better. The journey to achieve equality for all within Mental Health Services still has a long way to go, but we can all play our part to help ensure that no-one gets left behind”
Chief Executive Tom Cahill
Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, and World Mental Health Day is a perfect time to check in with yourself and those you care about. If you don’t feel well, maybe something doesn’t feel quite right, maybe you’re stressed, anxious, or even concerned about a loved one, then always remember there is help and support available, day or night.
