    Editorial Desk Dear Friends,

    In today’s era we all are caught in tumultuous, frenzied spiral of chasing money, success, power

    and a faster pace of life that imposes not only physical but social, mental and emotional burden

    on us. Good health which is physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being is a fundamental

    need of every individual.

    Mental health is one important component of health that is often neglected. According to WHO

    mental health is defined as “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own

    abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and

    is able to make a contribution to his or her community”. Mental health problems can affect

    anyone regardless of age, gender or race. It is influenced by interplay between biological,

    psychological, environmental and socioeconomic factors. Poor mental health poses a major

    challenge to the community due to its debilitating effects. It causes low self-esteem, poor body

    image, malaise, chronic stress and psychosomatic pain resulting in low physical activity leading

    to obesity, hypertension, diabetes and other non-communicable diseases. The correlations

    between poor mental health and an increased prevalence of musculoskeletal conditions,

    multiple areas of pain, chronic and preventable diseases, emphasizes the need for an effective

    and holistic multidisciplinary approach for the management of these conditions Physiotherapy

    and mental health have been widely debated topic since ages. Physiotherapy plays a major role

    in preventing and treating patients with somatoform, anxiety, obesity, depression, personality

    and behavioural disorders. Exercise can improve anxiety, mood and depression by increasing

    blood circulation to CNS and influencing hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis, moreover exercise

    releases endorphins and monoamines leading to decreased negative mood. Exercise alleviate

    symptoms such as low self-esteem and social withdrawal. Society is less aware about the

    physiotherapy services and its role in mental health disorders.

    The World Physiotherapy day 2018 comes with the theme “PHYSICAL THERAPY AND MENTAL

    HEALTH”. It is a step to make the world aware about the role of physical therapy beyond

    physical conditions such as mental disorders.

    We have shared a small write up prepared by the WCPT on the occasion of world physiotherapy

    day with the theme focusing on role of physiotherapy in mental health in this issue.

    “Physical therapy and mental health” A briefing by WCPT

    The campaign message of World Physical Therapy Day 2018 is “Physical therapy and mental health”, demonstrating the role that physical therapy and physical activity has in mental health. The campaign is focused around the following key messages. • Exercise as an evidence-based treatment for depression. • The role of physical therapists working with patients who may have mental health issues. • The benefits of physical activity in protecting against the emergence of depression. • How better outcomes are experienced when exercise is delivered by a qualified healthcare professional, such as a physical therapist. • How people with mental health issues are more at risk of having poor physical health. WCPT encourages member organisations and physical therapists around the world to use WCPT’s toolkit to convey these messages to the public and policy makers. These messages are important not just to encourage health and activity in populations. They can help demonstrate how physical therapists keep people moving through advice and exercise programmes.
