Mental health philanthropy: still in the shadows

Despite increasing attention during the pandemic, mental health philanthropy  is still lagging behind.  Many explanations have been given for this: the difficulty of diagnosis, the stigma mental illness can bring with it, the lack of a coordinated response from the medical and funding communities.​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​In this virtual event, we'll be exploring the current state of mental health philanthropy, and what can be done to better support the sector. 

All event registrants will receive a recording of the event afterwards.

Among the questions participants will discuss are: 

  •  ​​​​​​​What is philanthropy currently doing to support better mental health?

  • ​​​​​​​How can it do more?

  • ​​​​​​​What are the obstacles to its doing so?

  • ​​​​​​​What should its main role be – funding advocacy, research, treatment, support for mental well-being generally – or a combination of all of these?
