Mental Health for Development Professionals
This event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
While mental health was left out of the Millennium Development Goals, mental health and well-being are now covered under a number of the Sustainable Development Goals. However, mental health can seem like a challenging topic to broach. Many people working in international development don’t feel they have the confidence to start engaging with it.
This seminar will bring together development professionals and academics working in mental health to formally launch a new Knowledge, Evidence and Learning for Development (K4D)-DFID Topic Guide on mental health for development professionals, and to discuss some of the key questions that those working in international development often have about mental health:
- How does mental health impact my work in development, and vice-versa?
- What are some of the entry-points to “do more and do better” in mental health?
- Are there clear examples of promising and best practice that show this is possible “in the real world”?
This seminar is co-hosted by the Centre for Global Mental Health (CGMH) and the Bond Disability Sub-Group on Mental Health. Drinks reception to follow.
