Mental disorders are treatable; and the evidence for effective treatments in low- and middle-income countries is growing. The MGMH Call for Action urges us “to scale up the coverage of services for mental disorders in all countries.”
This section of the website describes some of the mental health interventions that are being put into practice in low- and middle-income countries and provides guidelines for care with an emphasis on community-based care.

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.
