The importance of reducing the mental health care gap has never been more critical. The current reality of limited financial resources, stigma associated with mental health problems, and too few professionals to support the vast mental health needs of the population means that professionals and organizations have an obligation to innovate mental health care delivery.

Mental Health Leadership: Transformation Through Innovation is based on decades of real-world experiences of the lead Harvard faculty and encompasses a range of themes related to the core mission of scaling-up mental health care and realizing mental health progress. This interactive executive education course will introduce the reasons for the current state, key innovations which can transform mental health care and discuss how these might be scaled up both globally and in the United States.

Join us as expert Harvard faculty cover the most pressing topics health care professionals are facing today, including: the social determinants of mental health problems; a life course approach to addressing mental health problems; mental health in the workplace and in humanitarian settings; innovative models of mental health care delivery; the application of digital technologies in mental health care; a rights-based approach to mental health care; and more. Ultimately, participants will learn the value of redesigning the architecture of care, resource investments and accountability to benefit your system.
