The Alan J. Flisher Centre for Public Mental Health (CPMH) invites you to join us for our first webinar on World Mental Health Day. On 10 October Dr. Lisa Brenner will be speaking on this year’s topic of mental health promotion and suicide prevention.
The CPMH’s monthly seminar programme is an opportunity to share ongoing work and invite broader participation in the Centre. The venue for the seminars alternate between UCT and SU, and are held monthly.
A key gap in current mental health professional training in Africa and globally is an orientation to public mental health. This means an orientation to the mental health needs of populations, and the policies, laws and services that are required to meet those needs. Read more about how the CPMH is adressing this gap with its capacity building efforts.
Through the development of capacity, research and consultancy, the Centre provides a key resource for advocacy for the inclusion of mental health on health and development policy agendas, both nationally, regionally in Africa and internationally. It also advocates actively for the human rights of people living with mental disorders; and provides evidence for cost-effective interventions that can be used for the development and delivery of services.
