Movement for Global Mental Health

About the movement:

The Movement for Global Mental Health (“the Movement”) is a network of individuals and organizations that aim to improve services for people with mental disorders worldwide, especially in low- and middle-income countries where effective services are often scarce. Two principles are fundamental to the Movement: scientific evidence and human rights.

Half of Us

Did you know that depression affects about 19 million people in the United States every year? College students are especially at risk with half reporting that they have been so stressed that they couldn’t function during the past year. The impact of mental illness is so devastating that suicide is the third leading cause of death among all people ages 15-24. With so many people struggling, why is it still hard for us to talk about “mental health?”

Nearly all mental health issues can be improved with proper treatment. When we decrease the stigma around mental health and encourage students to seek help if they need it, we are changing and saving lives.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy Self-Help Resources

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) has been proven to help mental health problems.  This website offers CBT self-help information, resources and tools, including therapy worksheets.

CBT helps an individual make sense of their current problems, whilst understanding the influences of past experiences, using a diagrammatic representation or “formulation” which directs the treatment.  This formulation may be highly individualized and more complex for severe problems, but may also include more simple vicious cycles when looking at what is helping to keep the problem going today.
