IAC Advocates for Mental Health at UNESCO



IAC represented the counseling profession at a UNESCO meeting of partner organizations on 17 April to discuss ways to advance ongoing collaborative efforts. In honor of World Press Freedom Day, the meeting focused on freedom of expression.
IAC Secretary Nate Perron underscored the impact that challenges to freedom of expression have on mental health and called for suggestions of ways that IAC can collaborate further with UNESCO and partner organizations to support the need for mental health and counseling for individuals of diverse backgrounds, experiences, and identities.
IAC continues to explore additional ways in which we can represent the counseling profession in supporting the efforts of other UNESCO partner NGOs.
