Notes

The WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION will play its part in the task of applying mental hygiene principles in its health programs. The work of WHO in this field is concerned particularly with the prevention and with the cure of physical ills. The program approved by the WHO Executive Board also provides for special studies as well as for demonstrations in educational methods with respect to mental health. An important objective in this connection will be to raise levels of professional training, the term being understood in the broadest sense to include a large number of professions which are considered as having a rôle to play in the field of mental health. Finally, WHO will endeavor to extend its action to as many areas as possible in coöperation with such other organizations as UNESCO and the World Federation for Mental Health which was established last August at the international conference in London.

The World Health Organization is thus moving toward full realization of the objective set forth in its constitution as 'the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health', with the word health defined as 'a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity'.
