A global social media challenge to get the world moving on mental health has been launched with a call for a massive scale-up in investment in mental health. The World Health Organization, in collaboration with United for Global Mental Health and the World Federation for Mental Health, are encouraging people from all countries to support a global movement calling for greater investment in mental health.
The #MoveforMentalHealth challenge is asking people around the world to post videos showing what they do in support of their mental wellbeing ̶ whether it be dancing, walking, doing yoga, cooking, painting or something else entirely, on their favourite social media platforms, using the hashtag #MoveForMentalHealth.
Social media platforms such as Tik-Tok, Facebook and Instagram are supporting the #MoveforMentalHealth challenge and helping kickstart broader conversations about mental health, and the importance of investment.
