Monday 10 October is World Mental Health Day, and the theme for this year is ‘Making mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority.’

It’s also Black History Month in the UK, where race and mental health are closely linked.

Mental health problems affect all of us in some way, so we need to do whatever we can to prevent it where possible, and make sure no one faces it alone.

Certain groups of people are more likely to face mental health problems, including people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority groups, carers, refugees/asylum seekers, LGBTQ+ people, and people living with long term physical conditions.

The overall objective of World Mental Health Day is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilise efforts in support of mental health.
