Synopsis: This side event identifies concrete examples of means of implementation to deliver on the promise of the 2030 Agenda to promote mental health and wellbeing for all. These examples represent interlinkages with many of the goals and targets of the agenda. With millions of people of all ages suffering from mental health conditions, the importance of this aspect of life has now been recognized at the UN. In a historic move, "mental health and wellbeing," is included in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the introduction and as a development target. Additionally, mental health and wellbeing are recognized as cross cutting issues addressing many other goals, including Goal 1 (poverty eradication), Goal 2 (nutrition), Goal 3 (health), Goal 4 (education), Goal 5 (empowerment of girls and women), Goal 8 (decent work), Goal 11 (sustainable cities), Goal 12 (sustainable consumption), Goal 13 (climate change and disaster recovery), Goal 16 (peaceful and just societies), and Goal 17 (multi-stakeholder partnerships).
