The Future is Now: A Unified Approach to Mental Health

Addressing mental health is more urgent than ever. As new health, economic, sociopolitical, and environmental crises emerge, the burden of proof mental health grows and threatens our ability to recover, thrive, and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The Impact of COVID-19 urges us to create a future where mental health and wellbeing is a human right, services are accessible, and cross-sectoral action underlies prevention and response efforts. This session stimulates discussion on a paradigm shift to a unified approach to mental health promotion and preparedness.

This panel will introduce innovations in shaping person-centered health systems and integrated workforces, driving evidence-based public policy, and leveraging financing tools for better resource prioritization and allocation. The ecosystem platform enables us to leverage the unprecedented support for mental health in a global call to action encouraging country leaders to prioritize and invest in mental health.

Dr. Mark van Ommeren, Health, Mental Health Unit, Department of Mental Health and Substance Use, WHO
Ms. Sarah Kline, Co-Founder and CEO, United for Global Mental Health
