At the time of the first Lancet series on global mental health in 2007, only 1% of all clinical trials in mental health came from low- or middle-income countries, despite that these areas represent 80% of the world’s population. Moreover, three-quarters of this research was of limited generalizability because the samples studied were fewer than 100 people in size.
This section of the website describes important new research -- both qualitative and quantiative, and not only clinical trials -- about mental health in low- and middle-income countries.
Nothing About Us, Without Us - Voices from the Global South
28th-29th November 2015
Movement For Global Mental Health is delighted to announce the fourth Global Mental Health Summit to be held at the TISS Campus in Mumbai, India on the 28th and 29th of November 2015. The focus of this year’s Global Health Summit, themed “Nothing About Us, Without Us”, will be driven mainly by persons living with mental health issues from different social, cultural and educational ecosystems. The aim is to bring to the forefront voices of individuals from marginalized backgrounds, those who are rarely represented in discussions related to the mental health agenda.
We invite contributions (for both the scientific and non-scientific sessions that include theatre, short films, music, dance and other art forms) that highlight the issues faced by people living with mental health issues. People interested in attending and presenting at the Summit should contact the secreatariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
