Support WHO MIND and its projects

Financial support for WHO MIND

Despite their significant magnitude and devastating impact, mental health problems fail to be properly recognized and addressed by countries all over the world.

To change this situation and improve the lives of people with mental disorders WHO is actively seeking funds from foundations and other donors.

Help us to support positive mental health change in countries. Contact Dr Michelle Funk, Coordinator of WHO MIND (see contact information below).
