WHAT LIES AHEAD IN 2021
- We are now working to support WHO in the design and delivery of the “official” World Mental Health Day campaign. We are also working with partners on a range of other campaigns and advocacy moments. For more details see the GMHAN calendar.
- In September we will launch a new report on decriminalising suicide, produced with the support of Thomson Reuters Foundation’s TrustLaw programme and an international law firm who led and conducted the research. We will work to support national partners in their efforts to change legislation and practice surrounding this through the GMHAN suicide prevention working group.
- Finally we will soon be launching an independent monitoring mechanism, Countdown 2030. This key initiative has been developed by UnitedGMH with the WHO, GlobalMentalHealth@Harvard, Mental Health Innovation Network, Global Mental Health Peer Network and The Lancet. The platform will enable anyone to access information to track progress on mental health – including the social determinants of mental health (e.g. the impact of poverty).
We look forward to continuing our collaboration with a wide range of partners around the world. If you have any questions or would like to get involved please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
