We’re Building the World’s Mental Health Workforce

01

More than 80% of persons with mental health problems globally lack access to quality care. Without dramatically expanding the capacity of the workforce, mental health care systems will remain woefully under-equipped to deal with the rising needs in their communities.

Together, we can create a world where everyone has access to the mental health care they need.

Our Mission

To empower anyone, anywhere, to master the delivery of evidence-based psychological treatments and behavioral interventions.

Programs

Brief psychological therapies are effective for the prevention and care of a range of common mental health and substance use problems. Our programs enable frontline health workers and ordinary members of the community to learn to deliver them with sustained quality.

“I did not know much about depression previously. The information provided on maintaining confidentiality during counselling, empathizing or how to talk with the patients is something I enjoyed learning in the course. I am trying to utilize these skills in my day to day work. I feel that other frontline health workers should do this course so that they can learn about mental health and help the people in the community.”

“I work as an ASHA Supervisor with Shyampur CHC. The course on Healthy Activity Program was good. But what I liked most about the course was how to identify patients with depression and how to counsel a patient in our community. Prior to the course, I did not know much about this subject, or how to talk to a patient suffering from tension or depression. Now, I feel that after gaining an understanding of the subject through the course, I can save lives of people suffering from depression in my community.”

“None of us community health workers are provided training on mental health so learning this course was really good. I feel all community health workers should have access to this course since it would help them gain insight about mental health and they will be able to help people suffering, their neighbors, and the community."
