Tomas Soucek has become patron of sport - public awareness event

One game, one soul. This is the motto of an international public awareness event, a football tournament (not only) for people with mental health problems called EASI CUP 2022, which will take place from 11 to 15 July in Pelhřimov. At the same time, a Facebook awareness campaign begins in February, which aims to reach the general public. It will inform about mental health problems, where to seek support in case of mental health problems, but also about the positive impact of exercise and sport on our mental health. One of the best Czech footballers of today, the captain of the Czech national team, the key player of West Ham United and a native of Havlíčkův Brod, Tomáš Souček, took over the patronage of this event. EASI CUP 2022 is organizing the FOKUS Vysočina, which provides comprehensive care for people with mental health problems in the Vysočina region, as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations. The international umbrella organizations EASI and ENALMH are also collaborating on the event.

"We are very pleased that the patronage of this important event was taken over by Tomáš Souček, an excellent footballer, person, but also a native of Vysočina. It's a great example of how professionals can support such an important sport and public awareness event. It sends a positive message to the whole community, "comments Jan Drobný, event manager and vice president of ENALMH.

Tomáš Souček adds: “I am glad that I could to become a patron of EASI CUP 2022, which is also held in the region where I grew up. I believe that such as project can help people with mental health problems to feel better in society, but they will also help dispel the myths associated with their mental health problems. Therefore, I recommend watching the EASI CUP 2022 Facebook page, where a campaign will run, in which professional athletes, mental health professionals, but also people with experience with mental health problems, who can be very inspiring in many respects for all of us, will present themselves in short videos. "

"EASI CUP is an international football tournament for players with experience with mental health problems. Thanks to football, the differences between our handicaps are erased. During the game we are all passionate about scoring, succeeding, experiencing joy together with our team. Our worries and limitations are receding into the background. Sports and exercise help maintain our mental health and well-being. And that is the main message of the whole tournament and the whole event, "says Anna Šimonová, director of FOKUS Vysočina.

“The purpose of the event is to draw attention to the topic of mental health problems, which is still taboo in our society and burdened by many misconceptions and prejudices. At the same time, more and more people in the Europe are suffering from some form of mental health problems. According to the latest statistics, one in five people has experienced it,” summarises Alexandros Oikonomou, president of ENALMH.

The football tournament takes place from 11 to 15 July 2022 at the Pelhřimov football stadium. In addition to many domestic teams, foreign footballers will also present themselves. "The first officially registered foreign teams are, teams from Germany, Holland, England, Scotland, Slovakia, Norway Italy and Spain. The Facebook campaign will start from the middle of February, "adds Jan Drobný, the event's manager.

International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) is a UN day that is celebrated every year on 3 December.

The day is about promoting the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities at every level of society and development, and to raise awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in all aspects of political, social, economic, and cultural life. WHO joins the UN in observing this day each year, reinforcing the importance of securing the rights of people with disabilities, so they can participate fully, equally and effectively in society with others, and face no barriers in all aspects of their lives.

Annually WHO decides on a theme and develops evidence-based advocacy materials such as brochures, flyers, posters, banners, infographics, and presentations, among others. These materials are shared with partners in government and civil society around the world as well as WHO regional and country offices. At its headquarters in Geneva, WHO organizes an annual IDPD event to educate the public, raise awareness, advocate for political will and resources, and celebrate WHO’s achievements.

World Mental Health Day is on Sunday, October 10th, and this year, the focus is on Mental Health in an Unequal World. At Spring Health, we’re strongly aligned with the cause — every day, we work to make mental health universally accessible by eliminating every barrier to care.

Mental health conditions are on the rise, and inequality can exacerbate these issues. 

  • Nearly one billion (970 million)people worldwide have a mental health or substance abuse disorder. (Our World in Data, 2018)
  • Anxiety is the most common mental illness in the world, affecting 284 million people. (Our World in Data, 2018). Spring Health, a mental health and wellness benefit, offers support for anxiety and other mental health conditions. 87% of people who used their Spring Health benefit experienced a reduction in anxiety symptoms.

We’re taking this opportunity to highlight the changes needed to address mental health in an unequal world and talk about ways anyone can help.

Global Mental Health Inequalities

The global pandemic, climate crisis, and social upheavals throughout the United States and the world, have highlighted the systemic inequalities disproportionately affecting Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, as well as historically marginalized people at the intersection of various identities. Along with socioeconomic inequities across race, gender identity, and sexual orientation, access to mental health remains unequal.Between 75% and 95%of people with mental health issues in impoverished and developing communities do not have access to any mental health services.

Significant societal changes need to happen in order to address the effects of an unequal world on mental health. And while there’s work to be done, we’re proud to be leaders in the field when it comes to diversity. 47% of our in-network clinicians identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color — 3x the American Psychological Association National Average.
