2023 marks our 10th anniversary. It also marks the halfway point of the 2030 Agenda set by all United Nations members.
THE SDGs & MENTAL HEALTH
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an urgent call for action by all countries, providing a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet. They cut across all sectors: poverty, health, education, gender, and environment. Here at StrongMinds, we know that good mental health can help us meet the SDGs. When our clients restore their mental health, they go on to become vital agents of change. They combat stigma, counsel neighbors, transform classrooms, and more.
