United for Global Mental Health works as a catalyst organisation. We aim to generate positive coverage of global mental health – what works and what is needed to deliver more support for those in need on the ground.
In the past few weeks we have worked with our incredible partners to raise the profile of global mental health.
Here are a few examples of recent exciting moments:
- @TheLancet Commission on Global Mental Health and Sustainable Development launched globally and was covered by 62 media outlets in 15 countries. See more activity about #LancetGMH on Twitter.
- @ladygaga of the @BTWFoundation (and A Star is Born fame) and WHO Director General @DrTedros penned an op-ed in The Guardian that was widely covered in international media, reaching more than 111,000,000 people through twitter.
- @Aardman Animations released a fantastic short film, “Spotlight on Global Mental Health,” that helped to shine a light on the need for more attention toward global mental health to a broader audience and spread the word through celebrities, partner organisations and key events.
- Our partner, the @friendshipbench (an NGO based in Zimbabwe) secured global coverage when we helped promote its work through a film that was widely shared internationally.
- Our partners produced examples of amazing work throughout the world to demonstrate that it is #TimeToAct on global #mentalhealth: @AdvocacySAMHAM @buenasemillaorg @BTWFoundation @CarterCenter @CasadelParana @Clubhouse_Intl @CMHA_NTL @Ember_Incubator @FountainHouse47 @friendshipbench @GiveAnHour @iaymh @IMC_Worldwide @MHCC_ @mindsfoundation @MGMentalHealth @orygen_aus @TimetoChange @TheStabilityNet @WarChildHolland
