|Earlier this year, USAID’s Inclusive Development Hub commissioned research to inform discussions on addressing the global mental health crisis and decision making around the integration of mental health into development and humanitarian assistance programming. The Hub is pleased to announce the publication of this research, and will host a weekly, four-part webinar series to present key findings and discuss their implications for global mental health. Speakers will include mental health experts, researchers, people with lived experiences and more. Participants should expect to come away with a broad understanding of contemporary global mental health topics, shifts needed in how we approach this work, and inspiration for re-envisioning how we inform standalone and integrated programming. Sessions will take place weekly starting on October 26, 2023. Please find additional information on the sessions below:
