This weblog features the Global Integration Updates from Member Care Associates. The Updates provide materials to support colleagues in different sectors as they connect and contribute on behalf of the major issues in our world. Feel free to add comments and resources in the "Comments" section located at the end of each of the Updates.
In this Special News Update we feature recent materials--including milestones !--focusing on wellbeing and mental health. These materials are valuable resources that can inform colleagues across sectors as we work together to significantly improve wellbeing and mental health in our world.
Be sure to tune in to the live-streams and launches that are occurring this week (e.g., plenaries in the World Health Organization's mhGAP Forum, articles in the Lancet Commission's Global Mental Health special issue). Our apologies that we could not include many of the other recent materials, developments, and events related to wellbeing and mental health (see point five below for resources/updates from the MHIN and MGMH organization websites)
