World Mental Health Day, 10 October: Mental health in an unequal world

On 10 October 1992, the World Federation for Mental Health, led by then Deputy Secretary General Richard Hunter, celebrated the first World Mental Health Day. This year, the theme of “mental health in an unequal world” was chosen in light of how increasingly polarising the world has become, with many segments of the population falling below the poverty line and the wealthy becoming wealthier. 2020 and the pandemic exposed inequalities stemming from racial, ethnic, sexual orientation, and gender identity-based discriminations, along with human rights violations across many countries in the world.
