WMHDay was observed for the first time on 10 October 1992 and continues to be the official day of commemoration every year. It was started as an annual activity of the World Federation for Mental Health by the then Deputy Secretary General Richard Hunter and It has become the largest and most widely promoted education and advocacy program of the WFMH.
Please find our 2015 campaign material for the theme Dignity in Mental Health. You are able to use this entire document, with all necessary credits and sources noted, for your WMHD awareness event.
