World Mental Health Day 2021

World Mental Health Day is run by the World Federation for Mental Health and takes place on 10 October each year.

We’re working a special film for this year’s event

Mental Health UK is partnering with ITN Productions Industry News to produce a news-style programme raising the profile of mental health in the UK, from those severely affected by mental illness, to people whose mental health has worsened during the current coronavirus crisis.

We’re extremely excited to share that the programme will be airing on 10 October 2021 to coincide with World Mental Health Day 2021.

We can’t wait for you to see the film. In the meantime, you can watch an exclusive trailer of ‘Forward Together for Mental Health’ below.

Official theme

The World Federation for Mental Health have announced that the theme this year’s event is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’. Please check back soon to find out how we’re marking it and how you can get involved!
