PAN AMERICAN HEALTH ORGANZATION celebrates 2017 WMHD.
Les hacemos una cordial invitación a participar en el seminario virtual que realizaremos el martes 10 de octubre con motivo del Día Mundial de la Salud Mental, bajo el tema "La salud mental en el trabajo".
Una de cada cinco personas en ámbito laboral puede experimentar un trastorno de salud mental. Los problemas de salud mental tienen un impacto directo en los lugares de trabajo a través del aumento del ausentismo, la reducción de la productividad y el aumento de los costos de atención de la salud. El estigma y la falta de conciencia sobre la salud mental persisten como barreras para abordar la salud mental en el lugar de trabajo.
