Launch of the Global Framework for Youth Mental Health

Launch of the Global Framework for Youth Mental Health

12 May 2020

Join us on Wednesday 27 May from 9pm to 10pm (AEST) for the official launch of the Global Framework for Youth Mental Health - Investing in Future Mental Capital for Individuals, Communities and Economies, developed in partnership between Orygen and the World Economic Forum. 

In 2019 the World Economic Forum prioritised the need for action on mental health, and identified youth mental health and early intervention as key areas for impactful change.  They partnered with us, Orygen, the world-leading youth mental health research and clinical translation centre, to develop a Global Youth Mental Health Framework to support and guide local implementation of youth mental health care in any resource setting or country. 

The framework will be launched by the Hon. Daniel Andrews MP, Premier of Victoria with commentary from Professor Patrick McGorry, Lee Howell, Managing Director – World Economic Forum and Charlotte Petrie Gornitzka, Deputy Executive Director – UNICEF and will feature a discussion led by two youth consultants on the project; Nataya Brandjerdporn and Maddison O’Gradey-Lee, who will guide a panel of young people from around the world in a conversation about how the framework will impact young people, their mental health, their communities and economies.

The launch will be held via Zoom webinar and will be broadcast live at 9.00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).   Registration is essential to attend this event. You’ll be sent a unique link to join us via Zoom in your confirmation email. 

The full report and additional documentation can be downloaded here from 27 May 2020.

We look forward to you joining us to launch our global framework for youth mental health.
