Mental Health Week

World Mental Health Day

World Mental Heatlh Day, Sunday 10th October. 

The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on 10 October every year. This year's theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is 'Mental Health in an Unequal World'.


World Mental Health Day is an international day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma. It was first celebrated in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, a global mental health organization with members and contacts in more than 150 countries

Mental Health Day is coming up on 10th October 2021. This is an important moment in the mental health calendar and provides a great opportunity to raise awareness of mental health amongst match officials.


This year’s theme, set by The World Federation for Mental Health, is ‘mental health in an unequal world’. This is driven by access to mental health support too often being determined by where people live and who they are. MIND will be using the Day to shine a light on the inequality that exists within the mental health system and to encourage people to ‘Do One Thing’ to fight for mental health.
