'Depression' is the theme of the World Health Day-2017.

World Health Day is celebrated on April 7 every year to mark the anniversary of the founding of the World Health Organization.

As part of its campaign on Depression, the WHO has developed a series of posters on Depression with the punchline 'Let's talk'. These posters will be used in campaign activities and beyond.

Each poster depicts a conversation between two people about depression: mother and daughter; mother with her young baby and a health-care worker; student and teacher; two men at work; and an older women with a younger woman. Cultural variations will soon be available for each scenario.

Depression affects people of all ages, from all walks of life, in all countries. It causes mental anguish and impacts people’s ability to carry out even the simplest everyday tasks, with sometimes devastating consequences for relationships with family and friends and the ability to earn a living.

At worst, depression can lead to suicide, now the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds.

Posters are being developed in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish.
