Prof. Dr. Shahid Munir, Chairperson, PHEC attended the event “World Mental Health Day” as a Chief Guest at Fatima Jinnah Medical University, Lahore. Addressing the participants, Dr. Shahid said that, as evidenced by the inclusion of mental health in the Sustainable Development Goals, there has been growing recognition of the critical role that mental health plays in achieving global development goals in recent years. He also said that in order to support and safeguard mental health and help people who are in need, we must change our attitudes, behaviors, and methods. We can and should do this by making changes to our environments that have an impact on our mental health and by creating community-based mental health services. We need to step up our joint efforts to better integrate mental health into primary healthcare.
