WHO observe the mental health every year on  October 10


This year the mental health day was special than ever before


The 2020 World Mental Health day on October 10, in this year came at a time of the COVID-19 pandemic. The past months have brought many challenges: for health-care workers, students and for workers whose livelihoods are threatened; for the vast number of people caught in fragile humanitarian settings with extremely limited protection from Coronavirus  and for people with mental health conditions, many experiencing great social isolation . And this is to say nothing of managing the grief of losing a loved one, sometimes without being able to say goodbye, as WHO in a mental health day has informed.

During this pandemic situation the societies and economies have been affected at their core, and it varies from country to country. In overall settings the economic consequences are already being felt as companies goes in an effort to save their businesses, or on the other hand shut down completely.

As this year cames in the middle of this pandemic situation, and  given past experience of emergencies, it is expected that the need for mental health and psychosocial support will substantially increase in the coming months and years as the WHO has informed. The people will need more psychological support so there will be an increased investment in the mental health and mental health programs at the national and international levels, which have already suffered from years of chronic underfunding, is now more important than it has ever been.
