Mental Healthcare: A Right For All

April 7, 2024 – Although the United Nations has designated mental healthcare as a human right, Asia is significantly behind in terms of access to mental healthcare services. Policymakers and medical professionals need to continue the efforts to make access to healthcare – for both body and mind – a basic right for everyone. Some urgent items in the to-do list include:

  • Train healthcare workers to see mental health problems on par with physical health, and provide a better first-line of treatment;
  • Expand, decentralize, digitalize, and privatize mental healthcare infrastructure, so that more people can seek help, and
  • Address religious and social taboos about mental health, through raising awareness and better education.

This World Health Day, I would like to wish all of you good health – for both body and mind.
