Global Agenda Must Integrate Mental Health

Washington Post: Global agenda must include mental health
Annie Sovcik, director of the Washington office of the Center for Victims of Torture

“Access to mental health and psychosocial support must be an integral part of the global health agenda. … Global leaders recently convened in Washington to advance the Global Health Security Agenda on infectious diseases. Moving forward, we hope this important initiative will help bring government focus to psychological concerns and make mental health a priority. Prompt action by the international community is vital to stem the horrific tide of more children becoming part of the lost generation of Syrian children” (10/3).
