About the World Mental Health Day event

At this annual event, we draw awareness to the World Federation for Mental Health’s goal of taking mental health out of the shadows, so people feel more confident in tackling the stigma, isolation and discrimination that continues to plague people with mental health conditions, their families and carers.

It also provides an opportunity to network with colleagues and others interested in mental health issues.

Come and learn more about mental health in the workplace and help us highlight an increasingly important health issue worldwide.


Alternatively, you can email to reserve a place at the event or book your organisation a display space.
