Dr. Sajida Kazmi highlighted that the purpose of celebrating this day is to raise public awareness about importance of mental health, stigma attached and barriers to access mental health service & strengthen support networks. ​ I urge you to take a minute to reflect on your mental health. More importantly, I ask you to ask about the mental health of others around you. You will be amazed how simply asking and speaking about each other’s feelings, emotions, or simply daily worries, helps create a more positive outlook.

Dr. Naila Mir said we need to play a key role towards mental health action and implementation in today’s changing world. As today’s future, it is up to us to ensure that we provide a productive atmosphere in which our needs for physical, mental, and social health are ensured, so that we may be resilient and fit enough to deal with the growing challenges in the modern age.
