Mental Health and Wellbeing
at the Heart of the
 United Nations Agenda

 

Ambassadors, international experts,
and cultural performers convene
 at United Nations headquarters in New York City
to present concrete programs that
implement mental health and wellbeing

  New York, NY, 7 September 2016.

 United Nations headquarters New York City

 

 

The Missions of Palau and Canada to the United Nations in partnership with the International Association of Applied Psychology (IAAP) convened a historic event at the United Nations NYC headquarters on September 7th on
 
Mental Health and Wellbeing at the Heart of
the Sustainable Development Goals:
Concrete Means of Implementation.

 
The conference featured presentations from UN ambassadors and representatives from the World Health Organization, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the Clinton Global Initiative and non-governmental organizations around the world.  

Ambassador Dr. Caleb Otto (Palau) and Dr. Judy Kuriansky (IAAP) had partnered in a successful campaign with governments to insure the inclusion of mental health and wellbeing in the new UN Global Agenda 2030 for sustainable development (the SDGs). The Trudeau Canadian government has pledged major financial support. The Ambassador of Belgium noted the commitment to mental health of his Queen, a psychologist and speech therapist. Other Ambassadors who spoke in support:
 H.E. Jean-Francis Zinsou (Benin), H.E. Jane Chigiyal (Micronesia), H.E. Laura Flores (Panama), H.E. Maria Helena Lopes de Jesus Pires (Timor-Leste),
 and H.E. Lewis G. Brown (Liberia).

The exciting kick off was a performance of the original anthem
 
"Happy People, Happy Planet"
 
by internationally acclaimed composer and singer/songwriter Russell Daisey
with a troupe of musicians and singers.

NGO representatives presented real programs making a difference “on the ground” worldwide from Haiti to Hong Kong proving mental health at the heart of the agenda.

The event is the first of many to come relating mental health to the agenda goals -- ending poverty, empowering women and girls, climate action, achieving peace -- leading to a General Assembly resolution and reaching all people for mental wellness.
