World Physical Therapy Day 2018: new materials published

2 aug 2018
World Physical Therapy Day takes place every year on 8th September. The day is an opportunity for physical therapists from all over the world to raise awareness about the crucial contribution the profession makes to keeping people well, mobile and independent.


WCPT is pleased to share new materials for World Physical Therapy Day 2018. You can download these materials from the WCPT website.

This year WCPT is encouraging member organisations to organise events, campaigns and publicity around the key message of Physical therapy and mental health. The materials demonstrate the role of physical therapists working with people who may have mental health issues and how exercise is an evidence-based treatment for depression.

WCPT has developed a range of materials on this theme which can be used by member organisations, regions, subgroups and networks on World Physical Therapy Day on 8th September 2018. As in previous years, the overarching theme and branding is Movement for Health.

You can now download the materials from the WCPT website at
