Dedicated to research, practice, and advocacy that prioritizes mental health for all persons and communities worldwide

What is Global Mental Health?

Global Mental Health (GMH) is a field of research, practice, and advocacy that prioritizes mental health for all persons and communities worldwide. As with physical health, mental health concerns all humans, whether as a temporary, mild condition or more persistent and serious condition affecting individuals and families. And, as declared by the World Health Organization, there can be “no health without mental health.” Practitioners of GMH work to counteract social stigma and discrimination that is commonly associated with such conditions. Learn more.
