October 10 is the World Health Organization’s World Mental Health Day to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health. The theme for 2021, ‘Mental Healthcare for All,” highlights that access to mental health services remains unequal. Lack of investment in mental health disproportionate to the overall health budget contributes to the mental health treatment gap.
