World Mental Health Day 2021
Following a public vote by the World Federation of Mental Health, 'Mental Health in an Unequal World' has been announced as the official theme of WMHD this year.
This year's theme seeks to highlight that access to mental health services remains unequal, with between 75 - 95% of people with mental disorders in low and middle-income countries unable to access mental health services at all. This is in addition to high income countries, where access is not much better. Lack of investment in mental health disproportionate to the overall health budget contributes to the mental health treatment gap.
