Grassroots mental health interventions are uniquely equipped to provide effective and sustainable care. But they face barriers that hinder their impact.
Ember collaborate with grassroots innovators to overcome these barriers so that millions more people can access mental health services across the world.
There is no one solution for global mental health: one size does not fit all

Innovators know their needs. We form collaborative, empathetic partnerships based on listening
