Global Mental Health - 22 januari 2021
According to WHO’s estimates globally 1 out of every 4 people will be impacted by poor mental health or mental illness at some point in their lives. In high-income countries, 5 out of 10 people that require mental health (MH) or psychosocial support (PSS) cannot access the care they need. In low- and middle-income countries, this number rises to 9 out of 10 people. In the first 2 hours of the symposium we will discuss the state of the art in Global Mental Health, with a particular focus on psychosocial support in LMICs.
In the last hour of the symposium the Laureate of the first Sauerwein Medal will be awarded, we will launch the NVTG Knowledge Centre Global Health, and there is a session where young Global Health researchers will pitch their work.
