Location: Bethesda Marriott, Bethesda, MD


On May 1-2, 2018, the NIMH Office for Research on Disparities and Global Mental Health (ORDGMH) and Grand Challenges Canada will co-convene the annual Global Mental Health Workshop to bring together global mental health researchers, innovators, and other stakeholders on the theme of “Diversity: A Tool for Solving Grand Challenges in Global Mental Health.” The workshop will highlight the importance of diversity in science along the research pipeline (basic, translational, clinical, and implementation science); in the global mental health research workforce; in the individuals who participate in mental health research (including youth, racial/ethnic minorities, women, sexual and gender minorities, and individuals with disabilities) and in the short, medium, and long-term timeframes required for various research endeavors to improve clinical care.
