Vanuatu’s MOH conducts mental health activities

Acting Medical Superintendent, Dr. Jimmy Obed said the field of mental health is still a relatively new era in Vanuatu.

“Vanuatu has its challenges when it comes to getting help or support for mental wellbeing. For example, stigma and discrimination, lack of understanding of the importance of mental health, scattered islands, socio-economic status and many more. But each of us has a role to play to support each other and stay mentally healthy,” he said in a statement.
