The World Mental Health Report 2022, released by World Health Organization (WHO) elucidates the current scenario and scope of mental health. Using the lens of gender and economy it aims to catalyze action to inspire and inform better mental health for everyone, everywhere. Mental health systems all over the world are marked by overarching imbalances in information and research, governance, resources and services. The report concludes with two recommendations, first, we must deepen the value and commitment we give to mental health as individuals, communities and governments. Secondly, the physical, social and economic characteristics of environments need to be reshaped to better protect mental health and prevent mental health conditions.
