World Mental Health Day- Egypt 2010 sign now


WHEREAS, the major chronic illnesses - such as cardiovascular, diabetes, cancer and chronic respiratory illness - are responsible for 60\% of the worlds deaths and 80\% of those occur in the poorest populations of the world;

WHEREAS, chronic illness can complicate anyones life and a persons emotional wellbeing and resilience are among the most important factors in helping to find quality of life while coping with the challenges of ongoing illness;

WHEREAS, addressing depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders associated with chronic conditions can contribute to a better quality of life, improve medical outcomes, reduce mortality, and reduce medical costs.

WHEREAS, we envision an integrated health system where all doctors and specialists work together to give the best in patient-centered care;

AND WHEREAS, the World Federation for Mental Health has designated the theme for World Mental Health Day 2010 as ―Mental Health and Chronic Physical Illnesses: The Need for Continued and Integrated Care,‖ and urges increased availability of appropriate and equitable treatment through primary health-care services and facilities for those experiencing mental health problems and chronic illness;

THEREFORE, I, DO HEREBY PROCLAIM 10 OCTOBER 2010 AS WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY and urge all governmental and non-governmental organizations and agencies to work in concert with elected and appointed public officials to increase public awareness about, and acceptance of, mental illnesses and the people living with these disorders; promote improved public policies to enhance diagnosis, treatment, and support services for those who need them through the primary health-care system; and to reduce the persistent stigma and discrimination that too often serve as barriers for people seeking services and other assistance.

I FURTHER URGE ALL CITIZENS to join and support the local, state/provincial, and national non-governmental organizations that are working to make mental health a priority in communities throughout our nation.

Together, we will all make a difference and promote mentally healthy communities and citizens!
