World Occupational Therapy Day

October 27, 2021

Today is World Occupational Therapy (OT) Day – an international celebration of OTs and the amazing work they do.

World OT Day was first launched on 27 October 2010 by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT). Since then it has become an important date in the occupational therapy calendar to promote and celebrate the profession internationally.

This year’s theme, Belong. Be You, promotes the power of diversity and inclusion as we work together to build community and resilience.

To mark World Occupational Therapy Day, some of our fabulous OTs have recorded these video messages in which they talk about why they’re proud to be an OT. Click on their images to view their films.
