Diplomacy, Indonesia, Managing, Mental Health

Abstract [English]

The cases related to mental health become one of the most essential things in international discussions due to the existence of victims in these cases can interfere with the effectiveness of the world's human resources, especially in Indonesia itself. Furthermore, the attention to mental health issues is driven by the existence of the UN's grand plan through the SDGs which includes the concern for mental health. In this case, Indonesian diplomacy has a fairly large role in handling it in light of the fact that a large number of mental health disorders cases occur in Indonesia as well. It will be supported by the existence of national interests and foreign policies issued regarding the concern of mental health issues. This research is based on policy research that aims to determine the role of Indonesia's diplomacy in dealing with global mental health issues, which will be supported by policy recommendations. The research method uses exploratory qualitative with primary data derived from interviews and observation while secondary data derived from literature studies as the source. The results of the study indicate that cases of mental health disorders can interfere with the performance of international relations therefore it requires more practice in the diplomacy world. Indonesia's diplomacy is expected to strengthen communication in international forums in discussing mental health issues especially in its G20 Presidency, as well as provide positive facilities for Indonesian citizens through education including open literacy regarding the importance of mental health.
