The Global Mental Health Summit is a biennial conclave of people from across the globe who are passionate about mental health, who come together to share experiences and innovations, discuss the needs and upscaling of mental health services, identify opportunities to overcome challenges that impact on the lives and human rights of persons with psychosocial and intellectual disabilities. The ultimate aim of the Summit is to set service intervention and policy targets deriving from the agenda topics.

The focus of the 5th Global Mental Health Summit, themed “Leaving No One Behind” as per the aspiration of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), aligns the Summit agenda with the SDGs and emphasize that mental health forms a vital component in achieving the SDGs. The aim further is to bring to the forefront the voices of persons with psychosocial and intellectual disabilities and establish their role as a key partner in mental health but also in achieving the goals set out in the SDGs.

Testimonial

"My grandmother’s suicide had a terrible impact on my mom. Usually fun loving, humorous and jovial, my mother occasionally required hospitalization for depression throughout my childhood. Julie Hersh gives us a documentary ride in the mind of a potential suicide victim, and shows us her road to survival as could only be provided by one "who's been there."  Struck by Living is a story of courage, love, hope and victory."
