Every year, Uganda, like other countries around the globe, celebrates World Mental Health Day on the 10th of October. This year, the national festivities will take place on Tuesday, October 31st, 2023, focusing on the theme “Mental Health is a Universal Right” and the tagline “My Mental Health: My Right!”
At Kabale University, the Mental Health Management Committee, established by the Kabale University Senate, will join the nationwide celebration. They plan to raise awareness about mental health within the university community by actively engaging with students and staff across all campuses.
The theme for this year emphasizes the importance of taking immediate measures to ensure that:
- Mental health is acknowledged, encouraged, and safeguarded.
- Everyone is empowered to exercise their human rights.
- There is widespread access to high-quality mental health services.
