The McGill Global Mental Health webinar series provides critical, cultural, and practical perspectives on the global initiative to address mental health needs, especially in low- and middle-income countries. The webinar series aims to raise awareness of the broad disparities that exist in global mental health around the world; exchange recent social, cultural and critical research, focusing on policy and practice implications across geographical locations as well as language/cultural groups; increase capacity of practitioners to more effectively address the mental health needs of diverse populations; and provide learning opportunities for students and scholars worldwide. These multilingual online events will create spaces for interdisciplinary dialogue and facilitate international cross-fertilization.
