mh4all emerged as an awareness campaign under The MINDS Foundation. mh4all aims to bring light to the emerging global public health concern of mental health. Even as we are in the 21st century, mental health has not integrated into regular conversation or funding streams. This platform will be a central location for anyone involved in the global mental health sector to contribute personal narratives, video journals, guest blog posts, photos, and any other form of digital media that contributes to raising awareness around the topic of mental health.
