World Mental Health Day 2021

Lundbeck is once again shining a light on mental health in October in relation to World Mental Health Day October 10. Mental health still lacks the deserved prioritizing and we all need to understand that there is no health without mental health. 

Each year on October 10, Lundbeck and the rest of the world celebrate World Mental Health Day, and this year is no different. The global burden of mental health disorders is growing and mental health well-being, care and treatment should be prioritized by all stakeholders.


The UN Sustainable Development Goals are very clear that every member of society has a role to play in improving mental health. Lundbeck is no exception! We all play a role in this. As a leader in the field, we will continue to work tirelessly to restore brain health and improve mental health. On 10 October, we urge every citizen to raise awareness of the importance of mental health.


Everyone deserves a real chance of a good mental health.
