MHIN aims to facilitate the development and uptake of effective mental health interventions by:
- Enabling learning
- Building partnerships
- Synthesizing and disseminating knowledge
- Leveraging resources
The Mental Health Innovation Network (MHIN) is an online community for mental health practitioners, policy-makers, service users, researchers, donors and other mental health stakeholders to share information and resources to improve the quality and coverage of mental health care worldwide. Visitors to the site sign up to become MHIN members and contribute actively to the site.
A small team of MHIN staff help to curate what is shared on the site and promote key resources and information through social media like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. The MHIN team and collaborators also produce original MHIN resources in response to member needs.
