#SpeakUp - National Mental Health Movement 2018
Speakup
Mental health is a major concern worldwide and India is not far behind in sharing this. The neglect of mental health is evident from a World Health Organization report which estimated that 50 million Indians suffered from depression. The situation is particularly grim in our country where almost 30% of population of the country consists of children in the age group between 0 and 14 years. The enactment of the Mental Healthcare Act, 2017 is an attempt to protect the rights of the mentally ill and enable citizens to decide on the method of treatment in case of mental illness, lest they are mistreated or neglected. Mpower in partnership with FICCI Aditya Birla CSR Centre for Excellence is organising an annual leadership forum organized by ‘Speak Up’ – National Mental Health Movement on October 30, 2018 at FICCI, Federation House, New Delhi.s The flagship event would witness public addresses, panel discussions, QnA and exhibits set-ups at the venue by influencers and sponsors, supporting the cause. The platform is to encourage stakeholders to ‘SpeakUp’ about the ground level realities at various levels and steps taken to fight the stigma attached to Mental Health in India.
