World Health Day 2017
This year’s World Health Day 2017 campaign focuses on depression, what depression is, and how to prevent and treat it. The one-year campaign aims to reduce the stigma associated with depression and encourage people who are depressed to seek help.
In WHO’s Eastern Mediterranean Region as many as 1 in 5 people are affected by depression and anxiety as a result of growing humanitarian crises, conflict and displacement.

If you are depressed, sometimes just talking with people can help you feel better.
