INVITATION

  • Globally, an estimated one in four people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. Economic loss due to problems related to mental well-being is vast and there are strong stigma and discriminations against persons with mental and intellectual disabilities.

  • The International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) is celebrated annually around the world to promote awareness and mobilize support on critical issues pertaining to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in society and development. As part of this year’s IDPD programme at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, a panel discussion will be held under the theme “Mental Well-being, Disability and Development.”

  • The panel discussion will bring attention to the often complex and neglected topic of mental well being, disability and development. Key issues and trends in mental well-being as well as its relevance in promoting an inclusive path to development will be covered. The focus is on practical strategies and action points for mainstreaming mental well-being and disability in development priorities.
