GMH: What's Up? Recent Developments and DirectionsGlobal Insights, Office of International Affairs, American Psychological Association (June 2019).

--Are we shifting into a new phase of global mental health (GMH)? Very likely. In this short article we highlight several recent markers over the past year (events, reports, manuals, campaigns, consortia, etc.) that collectively reflect crucial developments and directions as well as increased momentum for GMH. It is the latest in an ongoing series of articles to orient colleagues in mental health and across sectors to GMH. We sense that GMH Generation 2.0 is upon us--as seen in the major growing awareness, acceptance, advocacy, collaboration, action, and hopefully increased funding for mental health (e.g., national health budgets, the Wellcome Trust’s additional £200 million for mental health research).
