PAU provides opportunities for students at all stages of study to join the conversation and take action to address mental health issues worldwide.

Open to all Palo Alto University Students

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.
