We are all in this together...

Mental health is one of the most important global health challenges of our time. Fostering and protecting mental wellbeing requires multi-sectoral action at all levels in society, but there is often a need for better understanding of available approaches, how they can be successfully implemented and benefit more people.

Our Summit in October provided a unique interdisciplinary platform for researchers, experts and practitioners to present and discuss innovative approaches to prevent and intervene for better mental health globally.

Post-Conference Report

 In October 2021, we organized our second digital summit, which attracted 800 delegates from 76 different countries from academia, healthcare, industry, politics, and civil society. The summit resulted in an impressive collection of knowledge and policy recommendations that we have compiled in a compendium of briefs.
