May is Mental Health Awareness Month. On May 21, 2024, ICAP presented the Grand Rounds – Intervention Approaches in Global Mental Health: Current Strategies and Future Directions.

Through case studies and real-world examples, two experts from Columbia University offered valuable insights into the efficacy, scalability, and cultural relevance of mental health interventions in different regions around the world. The webinar explored current strategies being employed worldwide to address the complex challenges faced by individuals grappling with mental health issues — spanning psychotherapy and community-based initiatives — across diverse cultural and socio-economic contexts.
