This year’s World Mental Health Day, comes at a time when our daily lives have changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have had many challenges: for health-care workers, providing care in difficult circumstances; for students, adapting to taking classes from home and anxious about their future; for people with mental health conditions, many experiencing even greater social isolation than before; for many, losing someone without being able to say goodbye. The need for mental health and psychosocial support will increase in the coming months and years. Investment in mental health programs at the national and international levels is now more important than it has ever been. The goal of this year’s World Mental Health Day campaign is increased investment in mental health. Learn more at:
