The Gulbenkian Global Mental Health Platform is an initiative promoted by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, and jointly conducted with the Department of Mental Health of the NOVA Medical School/Faculdade de Ciências Médicas, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, with the technical collaboration of the World Health Organization.
The Gulbenkian Global Mental Health Platform aims to contribute to the global debate on mental health in order to improve global mental health treatment and services. To attain this goal, the Gulbenkian Platform has decided to contribute to the global debate on four relevant health issues:
- The links between mental disorders and noncommunicable diseases
- The need for a radical shift from an hospital-based to a community-based mental health care model
- The promotion of human rights for people with mental health disabilities
- The links between social determinants and mental ill health
Having updated the science on these issues, the Gulbenkian Platform is now implementing projects in Brazil, Georgia, India, Cape Verde, and Portugal.
