    There are many stigmas associated with mental health, particularly in developing countries. However, as the World Health Organization mandates in its constitution, "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Greece believes that mental health should be of equal importance as physical well-being. There are many negative associations regarding mental health, and Greece believes it is this council's duty to correct this common misconception.

    Turkey agrees completely with Greece. We believe that mental health is often underestimated in terms of its importance. Because mental health can impact a persons life and impair their ability to function greatly, we think that it should be taken as seriously and equally prioritized as physical illnesses.

    The delegate of the United Kingdom would like to ask how the delegates of Greece and Turkey propose to treat these mental issues in developing countries. We think that the use of clinical psychologists or trained NGOs would be effective. In fact, Dr. Soos, one of CAIMUN 2014's keynote speakers, gave a very captivating presentation on mental health in war-stricken countries. Evidently, mental health is a big issue, especially in developing countries where issues are often not able to receive correct treatment. The delegation of the UK believes that we need to pay special attention to children, especially those caught in war zones.

    Hello Greece! Smile

    Bangladesh fully supports your point, in that mental health IS just as important as our physical well being! In many developing nations, many women in particular suffer from suicidal tendencies and depression because of unwanted pregnancies, domestic violence, and such. Mental health tends to be overlooked because most who are not mentally well learn to cope with it; but just because they are coped with does not mean that they do not need medical attention.

    I believe this topic should be covered in the next few moderated coccus as The emotionally scarred will only end up hurting the future generation. Djibouti would like to see this problem mitigated by sending education and supplies which will stop and rehabilitate those who are emotionally injured. We believe the emotionally scarred are as important Those who are physically scarred.

    Turkey agrees with Djiboutis and the Netherlands emphasizing of mental health care. However, we would like to bring to mind that even if awareness of mental health is achieved, health centers and doctors specifying in mental health are seriously lacking which makes diagnosis and treatment extremely difficult to seek . We would like to hear other delegates possible solutions to this problem.

    The delegation of the UK is in agreement with the delegate of Turkey, but also lacks a solution. The delegation of the United Kingdom would also welcome seeing solutions from other delegates.

    The delegation of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia would firstly like to commend the points and arguments brought up by the other delegates. Mental health problems affect people all over the world. In many places however, patients have easy access to healthcare and psychological therapy. We would like to raise a few points on this matter. We will not only represent the situation our citizens face, but rather we will represent the problems faced by the majority of the citizens of developing and third world nations around the globe. There are many places in our world today that are not as peaceful as others. Many places face civil wars, conflicts (Sudan,Syria) and many types of domestic issues that lead to violence, bloodshed, and weaponry. All these events ultimately resolve themselves, but unfortunately leave behind long lasting scars in the hearts and minds of children, and adults who were forced to be a part of a destruction that they had nothing to do with. War situations result in a huge influx of refugees to neighbouring nations that also do not have the resources and and facilities to take proper care of these victims. As a result, many of the mental issues will be detected in the early stages. This way, unaffected individuals will also be aware of these illnesses and that they exist, and any suffering patients will not be regarded / viewed as inferior.

    There were some parts that did not show up in the delegation of Ethiopia's last post. This post includes all of our delegations points and suggestions. The delegation of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia would firstly like to commend the points and arguments brought up by the other delegates. Mental health problems affect people all over the world. In many places however, patients have easy access to healthcare and psychological therapy. We would like to raise a few points on this matter. We will not only represent the situation our citizens face, but rather we will represent the problems faced by the majority of the citizens of developing and third world nations around the globe. There are many places in our world today that are not as peaceful as others.

All these events ultimately resolve themselves, but unfortunately leave behind long lasting scars in the hearts and minds of children, and adults who were forced to be a part of a destruction that they had nothing to do with. War situations result in a huge influx of refugees to neighbouring nations that also do not have the resources and and facilities to take proper care of these victims. So many of these refugees suffer from depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorders. The government of Ethiopia has especially noted that a large amount of refugees that flee to our nation suffer from schizophrenia, which can often result after a traumatic situation. We believe that there are many things that can be done regarding this matter in order to tackle it efficiently. We would like to suggest that being a vital part of the United Nations, the WHO can set up temporary residence stations for the refugees (tents etc. ). Doctors and psychologists can be deployed to these stations under proper security arrangements. As a result, many of the mental issues these refugees face will be detected in the early stages. Additionally, unaffected individuals will also be aware of these illnesses and that they exist, and any suffering patients will not be regarded / viewed as inferior.
