Collaboration: Artists x Global Mental Health Academy

The Columbia-WHO Center for Global Mental Health is committed to partnering with artists to work toward shared goals of challenging the stigma of mental illness, elevating the voices of individuals with lived experiences, and improving the quality of mental health care worldwide.

Since 2019, the Columbia-WHO Center for Global Mental Health has been collaborating with artists with lived experiences to enhance the Global Mental Health Academy (GMHA), an online platform to train clinicians around the world on the ICD-11 diagnostic guidelines for Mental, Behavioural, and Neurodevelopmental Disorders. In December 2020, the GMHA modules were published online.

We are deeply grateful for the individuals who have shared their creative talents and experiences to improve the quality of the GMHA training materials.

Visit our “Art and Mental Health” program to learn more about the independent artists and their work. Additionally, artists who are affiliated with the Fountain House Gallery have their work on exhibition currently.

Please join us in celebrating this collaborative effort and the publication of the GMHA training modules!
