Mental Health across sectors: Current Work and Future Directions

20 September | LSHTM, Keppel St, Rose room

The Centre for Global Mental Health aims to foster research and capacity building in policy, rights, promotion, prevention, treatment and care in the field of mental health, with a particular focus on resource-poor settings.  The health systems of Low and Middle Income Countries are weak, and communities are particularly under-served in terms of mental health care. Mental health issues can affect people at any point during their life-course from conception to end of life.  On the other hand, these problems rarely happen in isolation and often intersect with other domains such as non-communicable diseases, neglected tropical diseases, physical and neurological disorders, gender and violence, humanitarian emergencies, maternal health, and child and adolescent health.

The Centre for Global Mental Health will host a multi-disciplinary seminar to unpack the complex intersection between mental health and other domains.

During the session we will present case studies of interdisciplinary approaches that take this into account, and discuss together ways of strengthening our inter-departmental and inter-faculty collaborations and networks.
