Today, the World Health Organisation published one of the most in-depth reports on global mental health for over 20 years.
- Executive Summary (32 pages)
- Full Report (296 pages)
Here's the overview:
Mental health is critically important to everyone, everywhere. All over the world, mental health needs are high but responses are insufficient and inadequate. The World Mental Health Report: Transforming Mental Health for All is designed to inspire and inform better mental health for everyone everywhere. Drawing on the latest evidence available, showcasing examples of good practice from around the world, and voicing people’s lived experience, 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 mental health.
Thank you for sharing this. For some reason, a lot of WHO's reports usually escape my radar.
Cool report! Thanks for sharing.
Was there anything in the report that you or the Happier Lives Institute were particularly surprised by?
Thanks Abby! I haven't had a chance to go through it in detail yet but I'll aim to share some reflections sometime next week.
Thanks! I was just curious, didn't expect a super in depth analysis. Although that would be super cool to see too :)
