The South African Federation for Mental Health (www.safmh.org) and the Movement for Global Mental Health (www.globalmentalhealth.org), in conjunction with the World Health Organization's Civil Society Working Group on NCDs, is requesting your support to raise awareness about the increasing prevalence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
NCDs are complex, and we require a unified approach, informed by our collective concern that NCDs will adversely impact everyone. We support an inclusive concept about NCDs. No one should be left behind! We support a life course approach, integrated into all aspects of health and beyond and consider all chronic illnesses within the broad category of NCDs. All are at risk for mental, neurological and substance use disorders; all people will benefit from a strong response to these health issues that have become a common experience around the world.
