Join us in making mental health a global priority.

The World Federation for Mental Health’s efforts to promote mental and emotional health, prevent mental disorders, and ensure access to appropriate mental health care for people throughout the world are made possible in part by the support of its member organization and concerned individuals from many nations. The financial and membership support provided through organization membership dues and individual contributions help to sustain WFMH’s efforts to reduce the global personal, social, and economic burden associated with mental disorders and emotional ill-health.
