Reflecting on World Mental Health Day: Advocating for Universal Mental Health as a Fundamental Human Right.

Promoting Holistic Well-being: Mental health is not limited to the absence of mental illnesses but encompasses overall well-being. We discussed the significance of promoting positive mental health practices, such as self-care, stress management, and emotional resilience. Recognizing mental health as a universal right involves prioritizing prevention and early intervention strategies. Network AID encourages not only the government but also families, communities, and workplaces to accelerate and complement the stride, by developing a mental health policy plan that will aid the process. Mental Health is everyone's concern and we must act collectively to actualize that goal. Conclusion: Participating in the discussion on World Mental Health Day at Rise Radio 98.6 FM was a valuable opportunity to shed light on the significance of mental health as a universal human right. By advocating for accessible mental health services, challenging stigma, and promoting holistic well-being, we can create a brighter future where every individual has the support they need to thrive mentally and emotionally. Let us continue to prioritize mental health and work towards a world that recognizes and fulfils this fundamental human right for all.
