WMHD 2021: 'Mental Health in an Unequal World’

Every year, on October 10th, World Mental Health Day is observed around the world with the objective of raising awareness about mental health concerns and to draw on efforts to support mental health initiatives. The field of mental health, although has been found to be one of the most neglected areas of public health, has come a long way since in battling the social stigma and discrimination associated with it.

The theme of this year’s World Mental Health Day is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’. The theme signifies the disparity that has been existing since years in the accessibility and awareness of mental health services.

The world is increasingly polarized, with the very wealthy becoming wealthier, and the number of people living in poverty still far too high. 2020 highlighted inequalities due to race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, and the lack of respect for human rights in many countries, including for people living with mental health conditions. Such inequalities have an impact on people’s mental health.

This theme, chosen for 2021, will highlight that access to mental health services remains unequal, with between 75% to 95% of people with mental disorders in low- and middle-income countries unable to access mental health services at all, and access in high income countries is not much better. Lack of investment in mental health disproportionate to the overall health budget contributes to the mental health treatment gap.  

Everyone around the world can participate in initiating mental health campaigns supporting the theme of each year in order to facilitate calls to action to support their own mental health, as well as their friends, families and communities. Any country’s government, mental health organizations, and NGO’s play a crucial role in founding or scaling up the mental health services. Additionally, other sectors such as journalism and education can help in increasing awareness about the importance of mental health.
