Mental Health for Sustainable Development: The Role of International Non-Governmental Organisations

22-23 February 2016, London UK

Representatives of international non-governmental organisations (iNGOs), funders and development partners, and policy-makers are invited to a Parliamentary meeting on 22 February 2016, 4-6pm, to discuss the role of iNGOs in addressing mental health as a key component of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
 
Experts from iNGOs delivering mental health services in low- and middle-income countries will share lessons from the field and propose a call to action for the iNGO community in advance of the World Bank-World Health Organisation meeting on mental health planned for April 2016.
The Parliamentary meeting will be followed by a technical workshop on 23 February at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to formalise this call to action and determine next steps.
