World Mental Health Day 2020 theme
According to World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) the theme for World Mental Health Day 2020 is ‘Mental Health for All: Greater Investment – Greater Access’.
WHO director-general Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the world is accepting the idea of common well being protection and that psychological well being should be an integral a part of UHC. “Nobody should be denied access to mental health care because she or he is poor or lives in a remote place,” he added.
The theme stresses on the truth that psychological well being is a human proper and that it’s time psychological well being is made available to all.
History of World Mental Health Day
First noticed on 10 October, 1992, World Mental Health Day was simply noticed as an annual exercise of the World Federation for Mental Health and had no particular theme.
However, in 1994, on the suggestion of then-Secretary General Eugene Brody, a theme for the day was used for the primary time. The very first theme of the day was “Improving the Quality of Mental Health Services throughout the World.”
