On Friday, 17 June, 2022, WHO will launch the World Mental Health Report: Transforming mental health for all. Mental health is critically important to everyone, everywhere. All over the world, mental health needs are high but responses are insufficient and inadequate.
This comprehensive report draws on the latest evidence available, showcasing examples of good practice from around the world, and voicing people’s lived experience of mental health conditions. It highlights why and where change is most needed and how it can best be achieved. It calls on all stakeholders to work together to deepen the value and commitment given to mental health, reshape the environments that influence mental health and strengthen the systems that care for people’s mental health.
Join this important event to hear from those engaged with this seminal work which will support governments, care providers, civil society agencies and individuals in transforming mental health.
