A global campaign to disseminate the findings of The Lancet Commission on Global Mental Health and Sustainable Development to young people worldwide.
Led by researchers at the University of Oxford as part of the Wellcome Trust-funded project, BeGOOD, the campaign is co-designed with The Young Leaders for The Lancet Global Mental Health Commission, an international group of young people who share a passion for mental health. Further collaborators are: NCD Child, Sangath, and CitiesRise.
Join the conversation #theworldneeds – where people from around the world are sharing what they want to be changed for mental health on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. This is a collaborative project by My Mind Our Humanity and the UK Department of Health and Social Care to identify people’s needs and priorities in global mental health. Submissions are displayed at The Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit (9-10th October 2018).
Across the globe, people living with mental disorders have been hidden, incarcerated, tortured, abandoned and left to die. This must change. Mental health is not a privilege. It is a fundamental human right for all.
The earlier we support someone with mental health difficulties the more likely they are to make a good recovery. Nobody should struggle alone. Let's work together to support young people’s mental health, effectively, generously and from an early stage.
