Mental Health Program

Mental health conditions are one of the major groups of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) with crucial relevance in efforts to control and prevent NCDs. Mental health also has links to cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases and other NCDs. By considering mental ill health and other NCDs together, we can improve the lives of people affected by NCDs. People living with chronic physical conditions have higher rates of mental conditions, especially depression and anxiety. This may not be well recognized, but we know that physical health outcomes are worse if people have a mental condition, including a drastically reduced lifespan. Intervention strategies included cognitive-behavioral, relaxation, social skills training, general behavior, social support, mindfulness, meditation, psychoeducational, acceptance and commitment therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, resilience training, and forgiveness programs.
