World Mental Health Day – scaling up investment in mental health


“World Mental Health Day is an opportunity for the world to come together and begin redressing the historic neglect of Mental Health. We are already seeing the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on people’s mental well-being, and this is just the beginning” says WHO Director-General Dr Tedros.

Mental health is one of the most neglected areas of public health. Close to 1 billion people are living with a mental disorder, 3 million people die every year from the harmful use of alcohol and one person dies every 40 seconds by suicide. And now, billions of people around the world have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which is having a further impact on people’s mental health.

Yet, relatively few people around the world have access to quality mental health services. In low- and middle-income countries, more than 75% of people with mental, neurological and substance use disorders receive no treatment for their condition at all. Furthermore, stigma, discrimination, punitive legislation and human rights abuses are still widespread.

The limited access to quality, affordable mental health care in the world before the pandemic, and particularly in humanitarian emergencies and conflict settings, has been further diminished due to COVID-19 as the pandemic has disrupted health services around the world. Primary causes have been infection and the risk of infection in long-stay facilities such as care homes and psychiatric institutions; barriers to meeting people face-to-face; mental health staff being infected with the virus; and the closing of mental health facilities to convert them into care facilities for people with COVID-19.

That’s why, for this year’s World Mental Health Day, WHO, together with partner organizations, United for Global Mental Health and the World Federation for Mental Health, is calling for a massive scale-up in investment in mental health. To encourage public action around the world, a World Mental Health Day campaign, Move for mental health: let’s invest will kick off in September.

  1. the world health organization should take a five minute brake from the coronavirus and try classify those who get offended by everything as mentally ill.
    last week I was watching a video about a woman who was offended by the fact that the average man is taller than the average woman.these people belong to a mental asylum.

  2. Sir, here in India the government is forcing us to sit for exams during this pandemic. We don’t want to risk the lives our families as here most of the families are joint families. And moreover there’s flood and our transport system is also inadequate.
    We are getting mentally depressed. Too much that more than 30 students committed suicide. Please if you can address this issue…please save us.

  3. The CONJOB19 controllervirus plandemic is part of The Great Reset (World Economic Forum) and the UN Agenda 2030 new world order. Also see Rockefeller’s Lockstep. RESIST these evil globalists!

  9. At our chosen time we will reveal that COVID was actually the common cold. You low lives are so gullible.

  10. if you want to to cure mental health, people should have more money to spend without making everything more expensieve everytime… people dont only need money to pay their bills and food, but they need money to do things the feel good about doing it. but for those who have all and more than needed its some kind of status to see others having a worse life then themselfs … those will always say to people who complain about they live a to poor life that we should look at those who have even less… thats the wrong way. another thing,.. big companies out here in europe do not give away contracts anymore, they work with temoprary employees so they can change the people everytime when they have eurned the right to make a higher income, and people drop off to zero again… time and time again…

  11. Wearing masks spreads more virus than it stops! Every time anyone exhales tiny moisture droplets leach right through the cloth mask fibers. The moment that mask is touched by the hand for any reason, scratch an itch, adjust it, pull it down and up, hang it around the neck or ear etc. etc. That hand and fingers are now contaminated with contagious pathogens ready to pass onto any object touched that invariably will be touched and spread on by someone else and so on and so on. (exactly the same as coughing into your hand, no difference) That is exactly how these pathogenic microbial’s are spread through out the world millions of times every second of every day; by contaminated hands that comes in contact with any object that can be imagined, hand rail, door, debit machine, chair, table, pen, *grocery produce*, etc. etc. etc. the list is literally endless. Absolutely nobody is following strict “Medical and Infectious/ disease mask wearing procedure and protocol,” casually walking around with zero concept void of any critical thought process unwittingly spreading infectious disease around like wildfire.

  12. Necessity is the argument of Tyrants (like this guy) and its the creed of slaves. Slaves being the blind sheep wearing masks believing the governments. The same governments who always lie to us. George Washington once said, “Government is not eloquence its not reason its force and like fire its a dangerous servant and a fearful master”.

  13. I know you are smart.. because of this. in the future we will not do local gathering as our part of the traditional culture. I think because of you too late and there is no action. I wish you can do as soon as possible with the vaccine.. and others part is we will die because I could not able to eat and drink. HAS BEEN 8 months, you just repeat almost the fucking topic… soon we will die because of this situation….

  14. I watched 10 seconds and realised that this video is about discrediting anybody who criticises the W.H.O, Bill Gates, Obama and China
