The Lisbon Institute of Global Mental Health (LIGMH) aims to generate innovative knowledge, build capacity and provide technical collaboration to governments and non-governmental organisations in the area of Public Mental Health.

The LIGMH should be seen as a main stakeholder in the Global Mental Health community, in continuity with the successful mental health initiatives and projects developed in recent years through the collaboration of NOVA Medical School/Faculdade de Ciências Médicas, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, with the technical support of the World Health Organization.

The Institute is an independent organisation, hosted by NOVA Medical School/Faculdade de Ciências Médicas, Universidade Nova de Lisboa. The founding members of the new Institute include the NOVA Medical School/Faculdade de Ciências Médicas, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, the National School of Public Health of Portugal and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. A selected group of public health and mental health experts has also joined the institutional founding group in their personal capacity.
