AREA of Focus:  DISEASE PREVENTION
The Rotary Action Group on Mental Health Initiatives (RAGMHI) promotes mental health and wellness. Its members address the number one cause of disability worldwide - mental illness - through practical activities and projects that any club can introduce. As a result, communities improve access to treatment, confirm that mental illnesses are treatable, and learn that many cases are preventable.
