Mental Health at the World Bank Group

Mental ill health is a major problem for employers and employees alike, costing organizations billions of dollars every year and impacting negatively the lives of millions of people in the workplace and beyond. The World Bank Group is taking this concern seriously, most recently through its endorsement of a workplace mental health and wellbeing strategy. These courses are designed to help staff and those who manage staff understand the implications of mental health issues and how best to support one another in times of need.

Mental health is perhaps the most important aspect of well being of imminent future. Specially in the development context, mental illness experiences slide on the scale with morbidity at one end and productivity at the other. Traditional perception of mental health falling in the domain of Psychiatry/psychology needs to be changed with an economic sense of a multisectoral transdisciplinary jurisdiction... World has having unprecedented 25% of youth in its population and biopsychosocial model influence children from the early days of grooming and world health organisation figure 20% of children develop serious mental illness, is seriously to be addressed. Most of them belong to Asia and Africa which is expected to be source largest labor markets specially in post Corona world. Significant investments in mental health is already delayed.

This is a very important training module for the WB staff. If HSD has the capacity, It would be also good to facilitate such training for the WB development partners in the fight against poverty, such as city mayors and managers who are working under extremely stressing situations to meet the increasing public demand in infrastructure, services and governance areas.
