World Mental Health Day: Mental Health in an Unequal World

The theme of this year’s World Mental Health Day, set by the World Federation for Mental Health, is ‘Mental health in an unequal world’

The 10th October is World Mental Health Day, and the theme set for this year by the World Federation for Mental Health is “Mental Health in an Unequal World”.

We at peoplewise have been working for over 20 years to identify what helps people thrive, not just survive, when faced with adversity and challenge. The inequalities in the world, whether to do with wealth, race and ethnicity, gender identity, respect for human rights or simply access to support certainly qualify as adversity and challenge we all have to deal with.

While we recognise that communities, countries and societies need to change, and we applaud the work of many organisations in tackling those needed changes, the good news is that the peoplewise model of the 7 Pillars of Positive Resilience: the science and practice of developing mastery over our ability to not just cope with disruption and challenges but to persevere, adapt and grow in order to reach our full potential for happiness and success gives us a roadmap to thrive, whatever we’re dealing with.
