Why not take part in the ‘Big Event for Mental Health’ – on social media channels at 15.00 on the 10th of October

October 10th 2020

 During this online event, hosted by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on World Mental Health day; you could:

  • learn how the WHO is helping to improve the mental health of people worldwide
  • hear from national and international leaders about why they are making mental health a priority
  • discover internationally-renowned artists who have become mental health advocates and listen to their advice for those who are struggling
  • listen to critically-acclaimed musicians perform some of their most popular music.

Investment in mental health programmes, at national and international levels, is now more important than it has ever been. Given the WHO’s experience of emergencies, the need for mental health and psychosocial support will substantially increase in the coming months and years – as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
