What is Global Mental Health?

We all have mental health, and we all experience good and not good mental health at different times in our lives. But what is mental health? And what do we mean when we talk about global mental health?

‘Mental health’ is a blanket term for mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS). That includes our emotional, psychological and social wellbeing – affecting everything from how we think, feel and act, to how we handle stress, relate to others and make decisions.

When we talk about global mental health, and more importantly, improving global mental health, we’re talking about our big defining goal: to improve the mental health of every person around the world at a global and national level who needs support – particularly in low and middle-income countries (LMICs).
