The Yale Center for Methods in Implementation and Prevention Science Launches Its Global Mental Health Promotion Program, Led by Dr. Theddeus Iheanacho, with an Inaugural Lecture by Dr. Vikram Patel
The Center for Methods in Implementation and Prevention Science (CMIPS) is launching its Global Mental Health Promotion (GMHP) Program to help bridge the gap between knowledge and practice in mental health promotion, especially in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Although there is ample evidence for the effectiveness of various interventions for common mental disorders, access to and availability of these interventions remain low. Up to 65% of people in LMICs suffering from mental disorders do not get treatment.
