What is Latin-MH

This is one of the five hubs awarded by US-NIMH to increase research capacity that can create better strategies to reduce the mental illness treatment gap in resource-poor settings. The three main driving principles for this proposal are:  

A) to build capacity with a focus on strengthening within-region efforts so that sustainability and autonomy can be rapidly achieved.

B) to go beyond the traditional boundaries of mental health and develop strategic partnerships with other disciplines and health-research groups, and 

C) to fully integrate effective mental health treatment into existing primary care and community health systems.
