World Mental Health Day was first observed in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH). This year’s theme is “Mental Health in an Unequal World”.
“This theme chosen for 2021 will highlight that access to mental health services remains unequal, with 75 to 95 percent of people with mental disorders in low- and middle-income countries unable to access mental health services, And access is not much better in high-income countries. The lack of investment in mental health in proportion to the overall health budget contributes to the mental health treatment gap,” the WFMH wrote on its website.
