"Innovations in Mental Health: Expanding Accessibility
Some 450 million people live with a mental health condition, and approximately 260 million cope with post-traumatic stress. People with mental illness face stigma and exclusion from society, a division within communities facing recovery from conflict, displacement, and other traumas. Globally, mental health services are inadequate or nonexistent, and when they exist, Western-oriented therapies are often culturally inappropriate. We’ll share two innovative mental health support and community resilience approaches, and discuss how these models intersect with the work of social entrepreneurs."
