The importance of mental health is gaining regard in international development and on the world health agenda. There is now a priority on achieving equity in mental health care for all people worldwide, including through the use of new digital tools.
During the 2016 edition of the Geneva Health Forum, a workshop brought together mental health professionals from different countries. The aim was to identify gaps in knowledge and practice, as well as barriers to effective mental health care at peripheral levels. Differences, but also similarities, were identified between western and non-western settings. Lessons learned from the previous workshop will be discussed. The scope will be broadened and will include the use of new technologies in the mental health field and specific trauma interventions.
At the end of the workshop, practical recommendations will be proposed.
