For this journal, you will consider the prevalence of mental health illnesses and
violence in other countries. You will make recommendations to organizations and
stakeholders responsible for implementing policies for attaining United Nations
(UN) sustainable development goal (SDG) targets.
The first target of 806 16 is to significantly reduce violence and the death rates
associated with violence everywhere. The fourth target of 806 3 includes the
goal of promoting mental health and well-being.
For your journal entry, address the following:
El To get a sense of the landscape and how these initiatives are being pursued,
research sound mental health and violence prevention policies that have
been implemented. What organizations are in charge of these policies? What
makes them effective?
El Make recommendations to organizations and stakeholders responsible for
implementing the SDGs. Make one recommendation for improving mental
health and one recommendation for reducing violence. You do not necessarily need
to give a specific policy outline; rather, make suggestions for how
stakeholders might strengthen existing efforts. For example, distributing flyers in
strategic locations around cam pus might help college students know
who to reach out to when they need emotional support.
