Depression: Let’s talk about what we should all know
To mark World Health Day 2017 Asia-Australia Mental Health (AAMH) partnered with Jindal Global University to present a public seminar at the Indian Habitat Centre New Delhi.
The World Heath Organisation estimates that the total number of people globally suffering with depression has exceeded 300 million. In recognition of the enormity of this mostly hidden illness, the theme of World Health Day 2017 was Depression: Let's talk.
To mark the day, AAMH partnered with Jindal Global University to present a public seminar on April 6th at the Indian Habitat Centre New Delhi.
Titled “Depression: Let’s talk about what we should all know”, the oversubscribed and widely reported three hour interactive seminar drew an audience of leading Indian mental health academics, clinicians and NGO leaders, as well as students studying in the mental health field.
The seminar featured a video message from Asialink’s Chairman Andrew Robb who movingly detailed his own depression journey and keynotes from AAMH’s Professor Ian Everall and Professor Chee Ng who provided overviews of the global burden and the growing impact of workplace depression on economic productivity.
