World Mental Health Day, held on 10th October every year, is an awareness raising day organised by the World Health Organisation.
This year’s theme is ‘Mental health is a universal human right’. This is an opportunity for people and communities to come together to improve knowledge, raise awareness and drive actions that promote and protect everyone’s mental health as a universal human right.
Mental health is a basic human right for all people. Everyone, whoever and wherever they are, has a right to the highest attainable standard of mental health. This includes the right to be protected from mental health risks, the right to available, accessible, acceptable and good quality care, and the right to liberty, independence and inclusion in the community.
Join the World Mental Health Day 2023 campaign to learn more about your basic right to mental health as well as how to protect the rights of others.Find out more
