|Minister of Health and Medical Education at the closing ceremony of the 5th International Mental Health Photos Festival in Zanjan said: "The first pillar of the health system, especially in our country, is the issue of mental health, which can have an important impact on the economy of the community."
Sunday, May 5th , 2019 Dr. Saeed Namaki said at the closing ceremony of the 5th International Mental Health Festival at the International Center for Conference: Depression is now considered one of the most important mental illnesses in the country.
He said that one of the causes of an increase in the poisoning of people with homemade alcohol is the existence of a distressed and depressed soul that even drives them into drug use: these issues must be taken seriously.
The Minister of Health emphasized the importance of broadcasting cheerful programs from the media, as society needs more space for this than ever before.
Dr. Namaki said that new technologies do not rejoice people because the phone was once a tool of happiness and discourse, but it has now become a breakdown of society, so that theorists should not get the wrong idea that if something happened in the facilitation of technology, as a result, the state of mental health will also improve.
He added: "Today, privatization of the living environment has caused some problems and, given the importance of mental health, this issue is also of interest to the Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education."
The Minister of Health noted that holding the fifth international photo festival of mental health in Zanjan province illustrates this important issue and attracts artists in order to show calmness and encouragement of people to resilience.
