Global Mental Health Network

This group provides a space for a growing network of collaborations in order to study and discuss global mental health from an interdisciplinary perspective.

The Global Mental Health Network is a research network dedicated to fostering interdisciplinary and cross-departmental discussions and collaborations in Global Mental Health at UCL. Our vision is to create a space where researchers across different departments, disciplines and career stages can come together to share knowledge, ideas, and experiences. Our hope is that the network will encourage conversations, to learn from each other and identify new opportunities to collaborate. 

We aim to:

  • Foster a community of interest around Global Mental Health by bringing together researchers from diverse disciplines, methods and departments to connect, share knowledge and collaborate.
  • Create an interactive and productive space for discussions and collaborations focused on Global Mental Health that encourages innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to addressing mental health issues globally.
  • Facilitate deeper connections between Early Career Researchers and existing Staff and professional networks at UCL, promoting mentorship, training and career development opportunities.
