Where is Mental Health on the Global agenda’s? Vote!

Where is Mental Health in the NCDs (Non Communicable Diseases), the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals), the UHC (Universal Health Coverage) movement, or the Post-2015 Development Agenda? And what are the current developments in policies and the new Worldwide plans and priorities? And where can we exert our influence?
Harry Minas and Jan-Paul Kwasik have been writing an excellent article about this called ‘The Post-2015 Development Agenda’. Full text (about 2 pages) is available at the Movement for Global Mental Health website. Great read; in 5 minutes you are up to date.
They call for more action from stakeholders in global mental health too. They urge people to vote at the World We Want 2015 website: After signing up (make an account), click on ‘Add Your Voice’. Or at the My World 2015 website: Without signing up (so, you don’t have to make an account) choose 5 priorities from the list and important!: use the ‘suggest a priority (optional)’ at the bottom of the list of priorities. Here you can add ‘Mental Health’ as your number 6.
