Do you need mental health support?
Talking about mental health is really important. However it can be difficult for some and can trigger a strong emotional response. United for Global Mental Health is not a provider of mental health support services or guidance. If you feel you need support with your mental health please ensure you seek the appropriate support from your local health care facility, local community group that specialises in mental health or (if available) a national helpline.

The Best practice portal is designed to help you find practical and reliable information on what works (and what doesn’t) in the areas of prevention, treatment, harm reduction and social reintegration. It will help you identify tried and tested interventions quickly, allocate resources to what's effective, and improve interventions applying tools, standards and guidelines.
Guidelines and standards are popular instruments to promote quality and implement evidence-based recommendations. The translation of evidence-based recommendations into practice is the so called “implementation” process. In some cases it is sufficient to adopt the guidelines at service level; in other cases an adaptation to the local context is needed.
