Our new three year strategy

We are delighted to share our new strategy for 2021-2024, which will guide us in our next phase as an organisation.

Led by our Co-Founder, Sarah Kline, who was appointed as CEO by the Board of UnitedGMH as of 1st July 2021, we will continue to work for a world where everyone, everywhere, has someone to turn to for their mental health.


United for Global Mental Health is dedicated to creating a world that enables good mental health for all. We focus on what will make the most difference to global mental health, and we build whatever it takes to make that happen.


We unite people, projects and organisations so that they can learn, collaborate and make greater progress together.

World Mental Health Day 2021

Following a public vote by the World Federation of Mental Health, 'Mental Health in an Unequal World' has been announced as the official theme of WMHD this year.

This year's theme seeks to highlight that access to mental health services remains unequal, with between 75 - 95% of people with mental disorders in low and middle-income countries unable to access mental health services at all. This is in addition to high income countries, where access is not much better. Lack of investment in mental health disproportionate to the overall health budget contributes to the mental health treatment gap. 

We will share latest updates as they come through. In the meantime, you can view highlights from World Mental Health Day 2020 in our video.
