Movement for Global Mental Health 


The Movement for Global Mental Health (MGMH) is a network of individuals and organisations that aim to improve services for people with mental disorders worldwide, especially in low- and middle-income countries where effective services are often scarce. Two principles are fundamental to the Movement: scientific evidence and human rights.

The organisation of the Movement is the joint responsibility of the Secretariat, based at the Global and Cultural Mental Health at the University of Melbourne, and the international Advisory Group, who act in accordance with the Movement's Charter.

3rd Summit for Global Mental Health

MGMH hosts a biennial Global Mental Health Summit. These Summits bring together policymakers, academics, professionals, consumers, carers, service providers, civil society organisations, and disabled peoples' organizations, particularly from low- and middle-income countries, to examine challenges and progress and to chart the future course of global mental health development. It provides opportunities to share information, experiences and foster new international linkages and collaborations.

With support from the Lancet, Wellcome Trust, the Global Initiative on Psychiatry, World Federation for Mental Health, and the MacArthur Foundation, MGMH has thus far successfully brought together leaders in global mental health research, persons affected by mental disorders, and a range of other stakeholders to actively participate in discussions and debates.

 The 3rd Global Mental Health Summit was held on August 21-22 2013, in Bangkok, Thailand, in association with the World Congress of Asian Psychiatry (WCAP).

GCMH has made available the video presentations of the Summit speakers. Please click here to view the Summit videos.
