Initiated in June 2013, The Mental Health Innovation Network (MHIN) is designed to facilitate the development and uptake of effective innovation in mental health with the aim of improving the lives of people with mental, neurological and substance use disorders and reducing the global impact of mental health challenges. This is achieved through an open-access online repository, which is split into three key areas:
In this way, the network encourages collaboration, enables learning, builds partnerships and disseminates knowledge in order to promote innovative practice in mental health prevention, treatment and care across the world.
MHIN’s activities are supported by a team of researchers and policy makers from the Centre for Global Mental Health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, and the World Health Organization’s Department for Mental Health and Substance Abuse. MHIN is funded by Grand Challenges Canada.
