About: The Global MINDS Collective is a mindful social innovation platform that incubates, accelerates and orchestrates self and system transformations for global mental health. As the world’s first, the Global MINDS Collective trains, mobilizes and inspires students, practitioners and community to collectively address the most complex mental health system challenges in local, international and Indigenous contexts. The Global MINDS Collective innovates with and for communities in low-/middle-income countries and with and for communities facing marginalization, including mental health inequities. Through transdisciplinary collaboration, radical community partnerships, and innovative pedagogy, we catalyze and support a growing a network of system leaders capable of making a lasting impact on global mental health starting now.
Target Audience: Global MINDS Collective works with local and global policy partners (e.g. national and international strategic advisory bodies), practice partners (e.g. hospitals, community organizations, businesses), and academic partners (e.g., universities and colleges).
Impact Statement: By 2024, the Global MINDS Collective will be 10,000 mindful social innovators strong who have manifested mental health and wellbeing through self and system transformations.
