The Lancet Commission on Global Mental Health and Sustainable Development
The Lancet Commission on Global Mental Health & Sustainable Development aims to give fresh impetus to the prioritisation of mental health and ensure physical and mental health are valued equally by the global health and development communities. Seeking to catalyse change, the Commission outlines a blueprint for action on mental health to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
Commissioned by The Lancet, one of the world’s most prestigious journals, the final report is the outcome of three years of dedicated efforts by a group of 28 Commissioners from across the globe. They brought considerable expertise in diverse scientific and policy disciplines, as well as lived experience of mental health conditions, to the process.
The Commission was supported by The National Institute of Mental Health, Wellcome Trust, Grand Challenges Canada and MQ-UK. The formal launch of the
Commission report is scheduled for 10 October 2018 in London, UK,
supported by an international group of public engagement team and partners.
