Global MINDS Celebration, Showcase & Networking Event

Wednesday, July 24, 2019
10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Brescia University College (BUC)
Room: The Mercato

At Western University, the world’s first Global Mental Health INcubator for Disruptive Solutions (Global MINDS) trains, mobilizes and inspires students, faculty and community partners to collectively address the most complex mental health system challenges in local, international and indigenous contexts. Through mindful social innovation practices, transdisciplinary collaboration, radical community partnerships, and innovative pedagogy, we catalyze and support a growing a network of system leaders capable of making a lasting impact on global mental health starting now.

Over the past three years, Western University has emerged as a leader in global mental health system innovation, education and research through Global MINDS @ Western. Our core academic offerings include:

  • The year-long Global MINDS Fellowship Program for select students
  • The Global Mental Health System Innovation graduate seminar course
  • Research and evaluation of mental health system innovations

At this event, current and past Global MINDS Fellows and students will showcase their innovations and impacts. We will also be officially launching "The Global MINDS Collective" – a mindful social innovation platform that incubates, accelerates and orchestrates systems transformation for global mental health. As a not-for-profit, the Global MINDS Collective will work with local and global policy partners (e.g. national and international strategic advisory bodies), practice partners (e.g. hospitals, community organizations, businesses), and academic partners (e.g., universities and colleges).

Light breakfast and lunch will be served.
