World Mental Health Day 2022

World Mental Health Day was observed for the first time on 10 October 1992. The day, officially commemorated every year on October 10th, aims to raise awareness in the global community about the critical mental health agendas – with a unifying voice through collaboration with various partners – to take action and to create lasting change. It was started as an annual activity of the World Federation for Mental Health by the then Deputy Secretary-General Richard Hunter. In 1994, at the suggestion of then Secretary-General Eugene Brody, a theme for the Day was used for the first time. It was “Improving the Quality of Mental Health Services throughout the World.” Within three years, the Day had become a valuable occasion for interested government departments, organization and committed individuals to arrange programs to focus on aspects of mental health care. World Mental Health Day celebrates awareness for the global community in an empathetic way, with a unifying voice, helping people feel hopeful by empowering them to take action and create lasting change. This year's theme is "Make mental health & well-being for all a global priority".
