This year, there are two axes in the slogan of Mental Health Week. The first axis is "mental health in an unequal world." Inequality in mental health, compared to physical health, deprives many people with mental disorders of a normal life. According to the findings, 75 to 95% of these disorders are not properly identified in many communities, especially in the vulnerable and poor, and cause long-term suffering to those affected. Given the economic consequences and problems caused by the corona virus epidemic, it is essential that screening and treatment for these individuals in the post-corona period be put on the agenda. The second pillar of this year's slogan is "working together to make a difference." It is clear that an important part of the mentioned cooperation is at the international level. The lifting of oppressive sanctions is the most important cooperation that is expected to take place as soon as possible. At the national level, in accordance with the "Community Mental Health Policy Document" of the Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education, cross-sectorial cooperation to design and implement a comprehensive mental health program in the country, removes many current obstacles and promotes mental health for individuals.

In the end, while thanking from the heart the selfless and unique actions of all health defenders and hardworking factors of the country's health system and congratulating the World Mental Health Day (October 10, coinciding with October 8) and Mental Health Week (October 18 to 24) to All committed psychologists and counselors throughout the country, especially psychologists and counselors in the Welfare Organization (headquarters and provinces) and affiliated units and express appreciation for the compassionate efforts of these loved ones to reduce the suffering of members of society, I hope thanks to God Almighty and with Continuation and establishment of such efforts to witness the stabilization, growth and growth of mental and social health indicators in the country.
