World Mental Health Day’s slogan in Axarquia will read: ‘The thread that unites us’.
Velez- Malaga Town Hall has confirmed that World Mental Health commemorates, above all, the normalised social integration of people with some kind of mental disorder.
Councillor for Social Rights and Equality, Víctor Gonzalez, explained that “it is necessary to vindicate with initiatives like this, the fundamental rights of people with mental health problems.”
“Mental health is an illness that anyone can suffer throughout their life and it is very important for people to be informed and aware,” he added.
Gonzalez stressed that on October 10, “the aim is to demand prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment and continuity of care for mental disorders, as well as to make a general call for people with this type of disorder to be treated naturally and without taboos in the different areas of daily life.”
