Global Mental Health Research Listening Sessions

NIMH Global Mental Health Research Listening Sessions Registration

The National Institute of Mental Health’s (NIMH) Global Mental Health Team is hosting a series of listening sessions to hear the perspectives and experiences of people involved in mental health research in low or middle-income countries (LMICs) and under-resourced communities.

We are seeking a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We are particularly interested in hearing from people from LMICs or who are currently working at LMIC institutions. Individuals and institutions with and without a track record of NIH funding are encouraged to participate.
