Does philanthropy have a mental health problem?

Amy Cunningham

To mark the publication of our March 2022 special feature on mental health philanthropy, Alliance hosted an event in partnership with Strong Minds, a social enterprise providing mental health services to African women:

‘I think it’s critical to start rolling out what we know works now, using what we have at our hands. We don’t need fully-fledged tertiary systems. Families and communities are desperate for help AND they are also the groups that are the solution. How can we help capacitate existing cadres of community-based health workers to deliver the basic services now?’
