  • Nations for Mental Health Temas de Actualidad

    Abstract in English:

    The World Health Organization has established a special program called Nations for Mental Health to promote mental health in underserved populations, with special emphasis on women, children, adolescents, refugees, and indigenous populations. One of the program's objectives is to stimulate greater public and governmental awareness of the social and economic cost of mental illness and substance abuse. A second objective is to identify and promote collaborative strategies for improving mental health that can be implemented through country-level technical cooperation projects by organizations of the United Nations system, in cooperation with other international governmental and nongovernmental organizations. A number of demonstration projects are already under way and others are planned.
