Mental Health for Sustainable Development: The Role of International Non-Governmental Organisations | London, February 2016
Representatives of international non-governmental organisations (iNGOs), funders and development partners, and policy-makers will take part in a Parliamentary meeting on 22 February 2013, 4-6pm, to discuss the role of iNGOs in addressing mental health as a key component of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
 
Experts from iNGOs delivering mental health services in low- and middle-income countries will share lessons from the field and propose a call to action for the iNGO community in advance of the World Bank-World Health Organization meeting on mental health planned for April 2016.
 
The Parliamentary meeting will be followed by a technical workshop on 23 February at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to formalize this call to action and determine next steps.
 
These events are organized by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Global Health in collaboration with the Mental Health Innovation Network (MHIN). Stay tuned to MHIN for more information and coverage of the event.
