An interesting Blog from ‘A Prescription for ME.’ By Emily Beardall.
The 10th of October was World Mental Health Day. To mark the day, I decided to write about depression in M.E. and other physical long term conditions.
The theme for this year’s World Mental Health Day is dignity in mental health. The World Health Organisation (WHO), mental health charities, and individuals, will be raising awareness of mental health and what can be done to ensure that people with mental health conditions can continue to live with dignity. Human rights oriented policy and law, training of health professionals, respect for informed consent to treatment, inclusion in decision-making processes, and public information campaigns will hopefully all help to reduce the stigma and poor treatment of people with mental health problems.
