World Mental Health Day
Categories: HEADLINES, Health
On 10 October 2017, IF joined the celebration of World Mental Health Day by launching our animation "Reclaiming my health", on the importance of mental health and well-being of people living with complex conditions such as Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. We want to seize the opportunity to highlight that both mental health and physical health are key to achieve balance in our lives.
This animation aims to show the interconnection of mental and physical health and to help remove the stigma of having a mental health condition.
We invite you to share the ANIMATION among your colleagues, friends and family, and help us to raise awareness on mental health issues of people living with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus! The animation is available in Spanish as well.
Following up on the publication of our reflection paper on World Health Day 2017, we look forward to work towards making mental health services part of integrated SBH care. For that reason, we also ask for your help to grow our international network of psychologists and mental health professionals with knowledge and experience in the field of SBH.
