Mental Health For All, Greater Investment, Greater Access

This World Mental Health Day WFMH is pushing the need for greater investment and access to mental health support across the globe.

Why is Mental Health For All so Important?

The issue many people currently have at the moment is that the support isn’t available to them. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has not helped matters; the requirement for mental health has considerably increased, therefore, putting the current services under pressure.

The high levels of anxiety, isolation, fear, stress and grief have impacted those already suffering from poor mental health. Those who have never struggled with their psychological health before have also started to suffer from newfound issues.

Greater Access

The current global stats highlight a real need for prioritisation in suicide prevention and psychological health support.

  • Annually 800 thousand people die by suicide, that’s one person every 40 seconds!
  • Suicide is the second most cause of death in those between the age of 15 to 29-year-old.
  • 79% of the world’s suicides occur in low- and middle-income countries.
  • Along with the successful suicides, many also attempt. Those who have previously attempted suicide are the most at risk to die of suicide.

Greater Investment

Not only does mental health have a physical impact, but it can also affect the world financially. In 2018 The World Economic Forum said that failure to support the affected could cost the world up to $16 trillion between 2010 and 2030. Mental health support isn’t easily accessible and as demand is rising this is something that needs a collective investment.

What can you do as an individual or business to help raise awareness of the potential crisis?
