Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic there has been a major impact on many people’s mental health. The mental health of groups such as frontline workers, people living alone and those with pre-existing mental health conditions has been impacted immensely.
“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.”
Every year on 10th October The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day, this is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world. The theme for World Mental Health Day 2021 is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’ .
