Neuroscience Summit in New York
Neuroscience Summit in New York
More than three years after the start of the global health emergency due to COVID-19, experts in psychology and psychiatry affirm that it is still on the rise.
The mental health pandemic persists in the world with an intensity that gives no respite. Before 2020, it was estimated that 1 in 6 working-age adults suffered from a mental health disorder, such as depression or anxiety. Then, the global health crisis caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus increased the number of people with symptoms of depression by more than 25%, according to the latest report from the World Health Organization (WHO). The WHO, as an international organization, published a document entitled “Global Mental Health Report: Transforming mental health for all”, on June 16, 2022, highlighting the vital importance of this aspect of health and pointing out the contrast that exists between the needs and the insufficient or inadequate responses on the part of the countries.
Brain and mental health was the leitmotiv of the meeting, as it is the basis, not only of a good quality of life for citizens, but also of the development of a Nation. For this reason, the experts proposed that States must invest in the promotion and protection of this aspect of health to enhance the capabilities necessary for the world of the 21st century, which are based on ideas and knowledge. In this framework, contemplating, within public policies, the care and development of mental capital, understood as the cognitive, emotional and social resources of an individual, have a significant impact on a personal and collective level.
The WHO Mental Health Action Plan set a goal for 2020 for 80% of the member states of the multinational entity to have a mental health plan adjusted to “international and regional human rights instruments.” However, only 51% of countries achieved the goal. In tune with this very worrying situation, the experts who participated in the 9th edition of the Science Summit spoke out, which took place from September 12 to 29, in the context of the 78th United Nations General Assembly. , In New York. This forum put science and the brain as pillars for future development, both individual and collective. The Argentine neuroscientist Facundo Manes participated in the conclave, who spoke with Infobae from the US.
According to WHO global estimates, people receiving care for specific mental health conditions remained below 50%, with a global average of 40% patients with depression and 29% with psychosis. Then, as mentioned, in the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global prevalence of anxiety and depression increased by 25%.
Technology and advances in Artificial Intelligence were also discussed, given the need to prepare societies for technological change and advances in artificial intelligence. It was highlighted that science is the way to overcome difficulties and barriers, and that governments have the opportunity to promote investment in cognitive, social and emotional resources.
Another focus of the 9th edition of the Science Summit, organized by the ISC Science Intelligence in Science, together with other partners, is the role and contribution of science in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of The United Nations. Participants seek to generate and promote scientific collaborations that support Agenda 2030 and Local 2030, in addition to preparing contributions for the United Nations Future Summit to be held at UNGA79, in 2024.
On the other hand, emphasis was placed on global scientific collaboration, on policies, regulations and financial environments that support global scientific collaborations, especially in the brain field. The importance of current partnerships and the potential for global collaboration in neuroscience and treatment of brain disorders was highlighted.
Another important aspect of this meeting is the personal exchange of knowledge and collaboration between experts. This event allows experts from different parts of the world to share best practices, exchange work in progress and explore ways of enhanced collaboration.
The Argentine neuroscientist Facundo Manes took part in this summit, in his capacity as both founder of the Institute of Cognitive Neurology (INECO), – a scientific institution of global relevance – and as president of the Science Commission of the Chamber of Deputies of the Nation. .
Manes, maintains “We understand mental capital to be the totality of cognitive, emotional and social resources that a person has to function in society and interact with others and the environment. These resources constitute the basis for the acquisition of learning throughout life that support the person’s subsequent educational, labor and social achievements.
Based on the importance of these resources, Manes added: “A country’s investment in the promotion and protection of people’s brain health enhances the capabilities necessary to face the 21st century economy based on ideas and knowledge. Public policies that promote the care and development of mental capital and well-being throughout life have a profound impact on both an individual and collective level.”
