Announcement: World Federation for Mental Health
At its annual meeting in Copenhagen last summer, the World Federation for Mental Health designated 1960 as the First World Mental Health Year.
Mental Health Year will cover the eighteen-month period January 1, 1960 to June 30, 1961, and will culminate in the Fifth International Congress on Mental Health to be held in Paris in August, 1961.
Preparatory work for the First World Mental Health Year is already under way. The thirty-two member associations in the United States will set up a common joint steering committee to guide the preparatory work and the United States' share in the common world-wide undertakings for 1960. In addition to the common undertakings, different countries will pursue special projects of their own choosing, designed among other things to reveal the status and needs of mental health in that country and to develop new resources.
The Executive Board of WFMH has established a Committee to plan for the First Mental Health Year, the initial members of which are:
Dr. Frank Fremont-Smith of the United States, Chairman
Dr. John R. Rees, ex officio, of England
Dr. Brock Chisholm of Canada
Dr. Paul Sivadon of France
