Global Mental Health-Map (GMH-Map)

COVID-19 resources from various sources
--April 2020

--COVID-19 and the Need for Action on Mental Health. UN Policy Brief, 13 May 2020. 17 pages including an Executive Summary. “Although the COVID-19 crisis is, in the first instance, a physical health crisis, it has the seeds of a major mental health crisis as well, if action is not taken. Good mental health is critical to the functioning of society at the best of times. It must be front and centre of every country’s response to and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The mental health and wellbeing of whole societies have been severely impacted by this crisis and are a priority to be addressed urgently.” (opening paragraph in the Executive Summary). Video message/text by Antonio Guterres on the launch of the UN Brief on COVID-19 and Mental Health, 13 May 2020, (2 minutes 45 seconds). This video message is followed by a  video message by the UN with various comments by Civil Society in support of the UN’s COVID-19 action for mental health (two minutes and 40 seconds). See also the UN’s feature story in its global/health sections (13 May 2020): “UN leads call to protect most vulnerable from mental health crisis during and after COVID.”





A Global Map for a Global Movement (updated  May 2020)
This site is part of a collaborative project to further orient colleagues to Global Mental Health (GMH). Since 2011, the GMH-Map project has complemented the growing efforts to develop GMH around the world, to work collaboratively across sectors, and to promote sustainable wellbeing for all people and the planet.

Note that starting January 2018, w
e are scaling back this website in light of the development of other internet-based mechanisms to track with GMH, some of the main ones being the Blue Print Group-GMH Mental Health Innovation Network,  the Movement for Global Mental Health, and the WHO MINDbank. We will still update it though with some of the new GMH-related resources as well as those from our parent organization, Member Care Associates.

GMH Defined. GMH is an emerging domain which promotes  equitable mental health and well being for all. It is international, interdisciplinary, culturally-relevant, and multi-sectoral; emphasizes the right to health, and equity in health; 
encourages healthy behaviours and lifestyles; is committed to preventing and treating mental, neurological, and substance use conditions (MNS) especially for vulnerable populations (e.g., in settings of poverty, conflict, calamity, and trauma) and in low- and middle-income countries; and seeks to improve policies and programs, professional practices and research, advocacy and awareness, and social and environmental factors that affect mental health and well being." (based on the definition in GMH--Collaborating Across Sectors for Sustainable Development and Wellbeing, 2017)
