Konstantin Pavlidis
Mind Health vs Mental Health
Mental health focuses primarily on the mental and emotional dis-functioning of an individual based on their disorders and disease. Mind health goes beyond this and encompasses the entirety of a human being including the effect their mental and emotional functioning has on other people as well as their environment. We will address the global issue of Mental Health in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2023.
This event initiates a global campaign to bring awareness of the limitations and solutions for the current situation in Mental Health. During the summit, leading practitioners and influencers in the field will be presenting their work and offered "Mind Health Global Ambassador" awards for achievements in their holistic approach. We invite you to join us in this most critical global event.
