This year’s World Mental Health Day comes at a time when lives have changed considerably as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Given past experience of emergencies, it is expected that the need for mental health and psychosocial support will substantially increase in the coming months and years. Investment in mental health programmes at national and international levels is now more important than it has ever been, which is why the goal of this year’s World Mental Health Day campaign is increased investment in mental health.
