"On this World Mental Health Day, 2023, I want to reaffirm our commitment to the well-being of every citizen of Meghalaya. Our state has always believed in a holistic approach to healthcare, and mental health is no exception.
We understand that access to fair mental health and social care is essential for our citizens.
It's not just a matter of policy; it's a matter of humanity.
The Government of Meghalaya is dedicated to working hand in hand with all sectors to alleviate distress, improve mental health and wellness, and reduce disability arising from common and severe mental disorders. We have established mental health services across the state, from primary healthcare centers to district hospitals and specialized institutions like NIMHANS.
Let us continue to spread awareness, support vulnerable groups, and create a caring, compassionate society where mental health is a priority for all. Together, we can build a healthier and happier Meghalaya."
