High-Level Meeting of the General Assembly on the Prevention and Control of Non-Communicable Diseases

In preparation for the upcoming 19-20 September 2011 High-Level Meeting of the General Assembly on the Prevention and Control of Non-Communicable Diseases to be held at UN Headquarters in New York, the NGO Committee on Mental Health (New York) and The NGO Forum for Health (Geneva) are releasing a joint statement regarding Mental Health and the Scope of Non-communicable Diseases.

The statement is sponsored by both organizations, which together represent a consortium of NGOs who engage in programmatic and policy-oriented work on health-related issues, and/or recognize the importance of both health and mental health as a foundation for global well-being. Our organizations have serious concerns with regard to the absence of mental health within the scope of the non-communicable diseases agenda.
