World Mental Health Day
October 10 commemorates World Mental Health Day and is observed, in part, to raise public awareness about mental health issues. One matter that deserves critical attention is better integrating mental health care in global humanitarian responses. CVT Executive Director Curt Goering explains this need and calls on wealthy nations to contribute or increase contributions to the United Nations Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture in his most recent blog post.
World Mental Health day is an initiative of the World Federation of Mental Health. The World Health Organization supports World Mental Health Day through raising awareness on mental health issues using its relationship with the Ministries of health and civil society organizations across the globe.
