World Hearing Day is held on 3 March each year to raise awareness on how to prevent deafness and hearing loss and promote ear and hearing care across the world. Each year, WHO decides the theme and develops evidence-based advocacy materials such as brochures, flyers, posters, banners, infographics and presentations, among others. These materials are shared with partners in government and civil society around the world as well as WHO regional and country offices. At its headquarters in Geneva, WHO organizes an annual World Hearing Day event. In recent years, an increasing number of Member States and other partner agencies have joined World Hearing Day by hosting a range of activities and events in their countries. WHO invites all stakeholders to join this global initiative.

Mental Health Awareness Week: 9th – 15th May

Date: Tuesday 09th May 2023 to Monday 15th May 2023

Time: 09.00 to 23.30

The theme for Mental Health Awareness Week in 2023 is Anxiety.

Anxiety is an important human emotion but, in some circumstances, it can get out of hand and become a mental health problem.

A lot of different things can contribute to feelings of anxiety, including exams, relationships, a new job, a date or a big life change. It is also an emotion people frequently experience around money and not being able to meet life’s basic needs.

Anxiety is also one of the most common mental health problems people face. According to a survey we carried out recently, a quarter of adults feel so anxious that it stops them from doing the things they want to do some or all of the time. Six in ten adults feel this way at least occasionally. 

The good news is that anxiety can be made easier to manage. By focusing on anxiety for Mental Health Awareness Week in 2023, we want to improve public understanding of anxiety and share some of the things that can help prevent it from becoming a problem. And we also want to keep up the demand for change - to make sure that improving mental health is a key priority for the government and our society.
