It is supported by the World Health Organization, AUSEINET and the Global Consortium for Prevention and Promotion in Mental Health.

The growing global burden of mental illnesses is unsustainable. The evidence that mental health is determined by socio-economic factors is building. Strategies for strengthening research, policy and practice need to be consolidated.  Accepting responsibility for mental health should be everybody's business. From Margins 2 Mainstream will explore new ways that health services, governments and community organizations can promote mental health and prevent mental illness.
