CBM Global and its partners launch the first five of our Community Mental Health “Good Practice Guides”, which share lessons learnt from their global work on mental health for over 20 years.
These can be used by anyone, regardless of role, expertise, or area of focus, who wants people with mental health conditions and/or psychosocial disabilities to:
- Participate meaningfully and authentically in their communities;
- Have a good quality of life and wellbeing; and
- Have access to dignified quality care and supports to address individual needs.
The guides focus on Peer-Support, Community Mental Health Forums, Stigma and Awareness Raising, Mental Health System Strengthening, and Neglected Tropical Diseases & Mental Wellbeing. Each Good Practice Guide shares the perspectives of people with lived experience, mental health conditions and/or psychosocial disabilities, demonstrates how community supports, mental health services and systems can be improved, and illustrates how these efforts should be and/or are guided by human rights, personal experience, evidence and best practices.
Download the Good Practice Guides and share it with your network and communities.
