🎧 Strategic Mental Health
“Beloved I wish all things that you would prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers” (3 John 2). When a person is born again, they become a new creation in Christ at the Spirit level. The Soul is the house for the mind, emotions, will, intellect and desires. The spirit is born again, but the soul has to be transformed through the Word of God.
Dr Margaret Chan, the WHO Director-General, described the new Comprehensive Mental Health Action Plan 2013–2020 as a landmark achievement: it focuses international attention on a long-neglected problem and is firmly rooted in the principles of human rights. The action plan calls for changes. It calls for a change in the attitudes that perpetuate stigma and discrimination that have isolated people since ancient times, and it calls for an expansion of services in order to promote greater efficiency in the use of resources.
The action plan recognizes the essential role of mental health in achieving health for all people. It is based on a life-course approach, aims to achieve equity through universal health coverage and stresses the importance of prevention.
Four major objectives are set forth: more effective leadership and governance for mental health; the provision of comprehensive, integrated mental health and social care services in community-based settings; implementation of strategies for promotion and prevention; and strengthened information systems, evidence and research.
WHO is running out of time and not one is talking about it. They lack the capacity to truly change lives. Jesus said the truth will make us free. There is no substitute for reading, teaching and praying the Word of God.
