What we do
We unite: campaigners, practitioners, national organisations, businesses, people with lived experiences, funders, researchers, governments, and international bodies so that they can learn, collaborate and make greater progress together.
We incubate: Designing and setting up the initiatives that will make the most impact on global mental health and helping them to grow and ultimately flourish independently.
Our Key Activities
United for Global Mental Health is helping to drive an increase in political will and investment for mental health around the world.

On World Mental Health Day 2019, a new exhibition revealed the stark and powerful picture of potential that is lost across the world to people, families, communities, businesses and society due to neglected mental health and suicide. It also showed the potential of everything that can be found when people receive the support they need.
In April 2020, the Lancet Psychiatry, Mental Health Innovation Network, MHPSS.net and United for Global Mental Health set up a free series webinars designed to provide policy makers and the wider health community with the latest evidence on the impact of COVID-19 on mental health and how to address it.
