Students for Global Mental Health (SGMH) aims to engage psychologists in meaningful discussion about the global mental health burden. They strive to create awareness of the socio-political-cultural issues shaping the expression and treatment of mental health as well as the variations and challenges to assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health worldwide. The group accomplishes this goal through organizing events and collaborating with local organizations involved in this line of work.
Activities sponsored by SGMH include:
Guest speakers from national and international GMH programs and organizations doing mental health work internationally
SGMH PRS Student Poster Award
Activities and assistance for the PAU Institute for Global Mental Health
Travel awards for students presenting at conferences or pursuing research in global contexts.
