Psychological disorders comprise an urgent health problem in today’s world, said head of State Welfare Organization Anoushiravan Mohseni Bandpei. “About 25% of the Iranian population are grappling with some form of mental illness,” he said at the First International Congress of Social Health Studies, held December 21-23 in Shiraz capital of Fars Province. Noting that there are four aspects to health including physical, mental, social, and spiritual, Bandpei said social unity, inclusion and acceptance, as well as social activity are the main indicators of social health. Experts in law, social sciences, and medicine from the US, UK and Germany were among the keynote speakers.
