Report on the World Social Situation 2013
In General Assembly resolution A/RES/50/81 the World Programme of Action for Youth, Member States were called upon to address health issues of young people. In this context, the Department of Economic and Social Affairs has prepared a publication on the emerging issue of the Social Inclusion of Youth with Mental Health Conditions.
The publication raises awareness on the situation of youth with mental health conditions among relevant stakeholders and aims to start a global conversation regarding strategies for addressing the specific challenges faced by young people with mental health conditions. It underscores the critical need to move beyond treatment-oriented mental health programmes to include broader public health-inspired approaches that will ultimately foster the social and economic integration of youth with mental health conditions.
