Global Mental Health Research on SoCial Drivers Of MeNtal IllNessEs aCross The Lifespan

The gmhCONNECT will build a research education program on social driver interventions in global mental health. The program is based at the University of Illinois at Chicago and George Washington University with a large U.S. and international faculty of senior global mental health researchers. This program targets graduate and health professional students, medical residents, postdoctoral trainees, and early-career faculty who are U.S. citizens and permanent residents who are planning to submit or currently funded through NRSAs, K awards, Fogarty Fellowships, or project grant.

The purpose of this program is to facilitate their success as independent researchers and members of the research community in global mental health. Our program highlights intervention research concerning how social drivers impact mental illness, prevention, and care for populations in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs) and other low-resource settings.
