Partnerships manager wanted for fast growing global campaign on mental health.
Reporting to Founder and CEO
Salary: £40,000 to £45,000 Annually
We want to see a world where everyone, everywhere, has someone to turn to in support of their mental health. However, this is not currently the case. Worldwide mental health conditions are increasing and depression alone is on track to be the leading disease burden by 2030. The world is not yet equipped to handle this growing crisis, especially in low and middle income countries where the majority of conditions occur. United for Global Mental Health was established in 2018 as an organisation focused on increasing global advocacy, campaigning and financing for global mental health to address this growing global need and increase the political and financial commitment so that everyone, everywhere has someone to turn to when their mental health needs support.
Together with over 80 people from 14 countries, in just a few months time we will be launching the first global mental health campaign that is led by passionate campaigners and people with lived-experience of mental health from all over the world: from Nigeria to the US, from Indonesia to Australia and from Sierra Leone to Tonga. Supported by high-profile partners and ambassadors, our campaign will unite efforts to bring greater action on mental health.
