World Mental Health Day 2021 – Sunday 10th October 2021
Sunday the 10th of October is World Mental Health Day which aims to raise awareness and bring attention to mental health and the affect it has on people’s lives. The Mental Health Foundation’s mission is “to help people understand, protect and sustain their mental health” to ensure good mental health for all. The Society is fully supportive of this mission and recognises that protecting and sustaining your mental health and general wellbeing is of the upmost importance.
Having good mental health isn’t simply the absence of a mental health problem. If you are in good mental health, you can make the most of your potential, cope with life and play a full part in your family, workplace and community. Some people call mental health ‘emotional health’ or ‘well-being’ and it’s just as important as good physical health.
The theme of this year’s World Mental Health Day is Mental Health in an Unequal World. People from racialised communities, young people, and people living in poverty are disproportionately affected by mental health issues.
Access to mental health support is too often determined by where we live or who we are; this is why we are proud to work with Retail Trust, who are working to improve the stigma surrounding mental health issues. Retail Trust provide emotional counselling, hardship grants, debt and legal advice, career support, personal support and multi-channel gateway support.
This World Mental Health Day is your chance learn about mental health inequality. It is also an opportunity to speak out, spread the word and make change happen. To learn more about the subject you can visit:
