About

The NGO Committee on Mental Health is strongly committed to raising public consciousness regarding the importance of mental health as a priority issue; promoting psychosocial well-being, the improvement of mental health care services, advocacy and education in the prevention of mental illness, and advocating for all individuals to have the right to realize their full potential for optimal functioning, both physically and mentally.

 

The Committee works with the United Nations, and its specialized agencies, to ensure the inclusion of mental health issues within a broader context of concerns such as vulnerable populations, human rights, poverty, violence, the environment, peace, and well-being.

Under the auspices of the Conference of Non-Governmental Organization (CONGO) in Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the Committee on Mental Health engages in activities that promote, educate, facilitate and support actions in the international arena and within the scope of the United Nations interests and responsibilities.
