World Mental Health Day is an annual event in which the theme for each year is announced by the World Health Organisation (WHO)
More details of last year’s celebration can be found here.
World Mental Health Day raises public awareness about mental health issues. The day promotes open discussion of mental disorders, and investments in prevention, promotion and treatment services. The treatment gap for mental, neurological and substance use disorders is formidable especially in low-resource countries, including Sierra Leone.
The Sierra Leone Mental Health Coalition’s Event Committee is purposed with contributing towards the celebrations of World Mental Health Day celebrations in Sierra Leone, in collaboration with the WHO and MOHS. They are currently recruiting new members, as well as preparing a plan for celebrations to share with the MOHS. Please contact Anneiru at email@example.com.
