All are invited to attend a discussion on "Global Mental Health: Pathways to impact" with Pamela Collins, MD, MPH.Collins is the director of the Office for Research on Disparities and Global Mental Health at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). She has played a leadership role in setting the global mental health research agenda through NIMH¿s sweeping Grand Challenges in Global Mental Health effort begun in 2010, which brought together experts from more than 60 countries to set research priorities to address the mental health treatment gap. The results of this initiative were published in Nature in July 2011. The work led to the NIMH funding a set of global mental health research hubs, which were described in the May 11, 2014 edition of The Lancet. Collins has done incredible work raising the profile of global mental health issues and providing much-needed support that has led to significant progress in the field.
