Mental Health Innovation Network

Organization: Grand Challenges Canada

Country: Canada

Forum: Mental health

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:

  • Information on mental health innovations from across the globe and their impact, as well as downloadable resources such as publications, implementation guidance, manuals and multimedia resources.
  • A resource area to provide access to key published research, toolkits, guidelines, systematic reviews and reports.
  • An online community of mental health innovators with blogs, podcasts and webinars as well as a directory of members which enables users to connect with others engaged in similar work.

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.
