Unlocking the Power of Philanthropy: Our Latest Report

Despite the need, global mental health remains under resourced and underfunded from both domestic and international sources around the world. Over 1 billion people around the world are living with a mental disorder, yet countries spend an average of less than 2% of health budgets on mental health, and international finance to global mental health in 2019 was only US $160 million. 


To help tackle the lack of concerted philanthropic effort to accelerate on this urgent issue, we are delighted to mark the launch of our latest report - ‘Unlocking The Power of Philanthropy: How Next Generation Philanthropists Can Transform Mental Health Funding’. 

Philanthropic finance


Produced in partnership between UnitedGMH, Natasha Muller Impact and Arabella Advisors, this report examines the barriers of increasing philanthropic investment, both for philanthropists and the sector itself, and the opportunities for overcoming them. The report is based on in-depth research and interviews with next-generation philanthropists, and shows how traditional barriers are now being broken down across the sector. It also offers practical guidance and case studies for philanthropists wanting to get started in mental health, or for those looking to expand their support.
