Global Mental Health Scholars Program

About The Program

Columbia Global Mental Health Scholars are distinguished researchers with expertise in a particular area of mental and behavioral disorders. The Global Mental Health Scholars Program is run by the Columbia-WHO Center for Global Mental Health.

Through this fellowship program, the Scholars are provided with an opportunity to expand their research to a global platform. Under the auspices of the Columbia-WHO Center for Global Mental Health, GMH Scholars provide leadership and support for advancing research studies related to the ICD-11 in their diagnostic area of expertise (e.g. Mood disorders, Psychotic disorders, Culture & Psychopathology). These studies centrally informed the development of the ICD-11 and will continue to impact the classification of mental disorders across the globe. GMH Scholars also have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities and collaborations throughout their tenure as Scholars.

Open to postdoctoral scientists, research fellows, and faculty committed to a research career in mental and behavioral disorders, application submissions are accepted on an invitation basis.
