We post regularly on LinkedIn. Also, we send a bi-monthly newsletter full of noteworthy news, reports, free events, podcast recommendations, and links to our webinars. Sign up to stay up to date on the most relevant international developments in mental health!


We organize webinars on current and interdisciplinary themes. Our set of speakers is always international, and our webinars always start off with a personal reflection by an expert with lived experience. Would you like to collaborate with us? We are very interested in working together with new partners and exploring new themes. Contact Madelon Sinnige at

What are the benefits of using a child rights based approach? And how are these rights currently implemented in youth mental health care accross the world ?

In this webinar we will focus on two rights in particular : the right to grow up ( mentally ) healthy and the right to be heard, and thus to be actively involved in policy making.

Mental health results from much more than an individual’s experiences and behavior. We are all part of social ecosystems: our family, friend groups, school/work environment, neighborhood and broader society all influence our thoughts and feelings. And we are all part of the natural ecosystem: nature.
