Promoting mental health

(From the World Health Organization) 

There is no health without mental health. WHO advocates for a whole-of-government and whole-of-society response anchored on a shared vision for the future of mental health in the Region. Mental health promotion involves actions to strengthen the policy environment and the use of strategic communication for network building, stakeholder engagement, enhanced mental health literacy, and behavior change.

Mental health promotion interventions improve overall wellbeing and are delivered in the settings where people live, work, learn, and thrive. These include school and workplace mental health programs, early childhood interventions, social support and community engagement, women empowerment, anti-discrimination programs, and other interventions that address the social determinants of mental health. In order to maximize impact, mental health promotion activities must be linked closely with mental health services, and engage a variety of health and non-health (e.g. education, labor, social welfare, justice, environment, etc.) sectors.

WHO also leads high-profile advocacy campaigns to mobilize partners and resources, whilst raising awareness among decision makers and the general public. These include annual advocacy days on mental health, suicide prevention, and dementia, and other special initiatives.
