Today, October 10, 2021, marks World Mental Health Day.

With the high-pressure society we live in, mental health is quite often an overlooked subject. To delve into the matter, this day was born to provide an opportunity for people around the world to make mental health care a reality for all.

As the UAE continues to break the stigma surrounding this, mental health clinics have gained popularity to address factors surrounding depression, fatigue, anxiety, panic attacks and more.

With the outbreak of COVID-19, several clinics have adapted to Zoom healthcare services, adding a new meaning to virtual sessions, along with in-person sessions as per usual.

If you, or anyone you’re aware of, might require these services, Emirates Woman has curated a guide of all the mental health clinics here in Dubai.
