2024 GLOBAL HEALTH ISSUE OF FOCUS

NYC Skyline BW

Mental Health

Mental health is a fundamental human right and exists along a complex continuum meaning the experience of it varies from an individual, community and population level.

How can we approach this issue and contribute to raising awareness in a post-pandemic world?

 "We are in a global era, and global mental health has made a relatively late entry into this field. It substantially lags behind global health and behind many other sciences and technologies." - Javier I. Escobar, 2015
