CHANGING OUR MINDS: Social innovations for mental health
Mental health remains one of the most neglected areas of global health. Left unaddressed, it incentivizes wide-spread degradation of mental well-being, which actively contributes to substance misuse, abuse, and potentially death; a pressure remarkably noticeable amongst youth. Although existent, the potential of social innovations as solutions remains predominantly left in the dark. This Nordic Talk will highlight intergenerational, cross-sectoral mental health experiences and present new, existing innovative solutions for mental health. It will put the accent on social entrepreneurs’ voices, yet facilitate a cross-sector discussion with key sector representatives, to endeavor upon a unification of the various perspectives.
