Special Session 2. Adult Mental Health

“Mental health is a system-forming factor for many related areas, primarily the social spectrum. Our goal is a healthy society, resistant to stress, capable of overcoming difficulties, finding the strength to develop even in difficult conditions. However, this is not going to happen by itself. It is necessary to consolidate efforts of professionals in all socially relevant fields – health, education, social protection, labor protection, science, culture, art, sports, etc. Only a comprehensive approach will help create a favorable environment for mental health”, underscores Alexey A. Cherkasov, Deputy Minister of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation, a member of the Congress Organazing Committee.
