WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY 2016
Dear Members of the World Federation for Mental Health from European Region,
Let me start by introducing myself. I am Filipa Palha, a Portuguese clinical psychologist and mental health advocate that has assumed the position of Vice-President of the World Federation for Mental Health for the European Region. It was with great pleasure that I accepted this challenge and I do hope we can strengthen our collaboration.
I will come back to you in the near future to get to know you and your work better, to be able to facilitate cooperation between organizations.
For today, it is with great satisfaction that I inform you that the World Mental Health day material is already available at WFMH website [http://wfmh.com].
We are very proud of the excellent material that was produced, and we re-affirm our relevance not only to institutions but also to many individuals all over the world.
As you can see, apart from contributions from WFMH members there have been many international contributors from all over the globe. Senior representatives of MHFA, the WHO and members of the World Dignity project have supported us.
I am sure you will find this material of extreme use, and it will help you plan 2016 World Mental Health activities.
With my very best regards,
