We are delighted to bring this challenge to you in collaboration with Mind, the Centre for Global Mental Health, NYU’s Program in Global Mental Health, the Institute for Health Improvement, the London School of Hygeine and Tropical Medicine and Maudsley International.
The Centre for Global Mental Health (CGMH) is a partnership between the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and King’s Health Partners (KHP). The CGMH was launched in October 2009 with the aim of furthering the emerging field of global mental health. The vision of the CGMH is foster research and capacity building in policy, prevention, treatment and care with the ultimate objective of closing the treatment gap for people living with mental, neurological and substance use disorders. While access to affordable, effective treatment is a problem in all world regions, the focus of the CGMH’s work is in poorer countries, where health systems are greatly under-resourced, and populations particularly under-served.
CGMH are delighted to be collaborating with TTWUD Mental Health Challenge, as a fantastic opportunity to highlight the great work being done in low and middle income countries, and to encourage the spread of innovations that will improve the lives of people suffering from mental health problems.
