Globally, approximately 450 million people have a mental health problem. This equates to one in four families worldwide having at least one member with a mental health problem.
The School’s Centre for Global Mental Health has brought together exhibits that provide unique perspectives on the experience of living with mental illness, alongside the action the Centre is taking to develop innovative, effective and scaleable interventions to improve the provision of care and support to the one in four of us with mental illness. Alumni are welcome to attend all the events which are part of the programme.
