Ask the Experts: The Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals
About the FundaMental SDG campaign
2015 will see the end of the Millennium Development Goals and the launch of a new global development agenda, called the Sustainable Development Goals. #FundaMentalSDG is an initiative aiming to include a specific mental health target in the post-2015 development agenda, which is currently being drawn up by the UN. There is a short window to advocate for this inclusion, but there can be no health without mental health and there can be no substantial development without including mental health in the post-2015 agenda.
More information on the campaign is available here.
