World Mental Health Day | 10 October 2022

Make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority‘.

The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on 10 October every year.

For over 70 years, the Mental Health Foundation have been working to make sure that mental health is treated on a par with physical health. Mental health problems exist in our lives, families, workplaces and communities, impacting everyone. We need to do as much as possible to prevent mental ill-health – as individuals and as a society. We will continue to call on national and local government to prioritise reducing the factors known to pose a risk to people’s mental health, enhancing those known to protect it and creating the conditions needed for people to thrive.

World Mental Health Day is also a chance to talk about mental health in general, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to talk about things and get help if you are struggling.

You can find a number of local organisations that help aid mental wellbeing across the city, these include:
