World Mental Health Day 2023

Overcoming Barriers to Access

A person’s mental health can impact all parts of their life. By creating opportunities for better mental health for all, we create opportunities for everyone to lead happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives. As we celebrate #WMHD and this year’s theme of mental health as a universal human right, it’s important to recognize the barriers and opportunities when it comes to accessing mental healthcare.
