Who is the Global Mental Health Peer Network?
“Strengthening the voices of persons with lived experience globally through empowerment and inspiring respect and acknowledgement of their experiences, views and opinions as valued and equal citizens of the world”
Two principles are fundamental to the GMHPN:
- Create communities where persons with lived experience are valued as equal citizens of the world, free from stigma, discrimination, inequality and inequity
- Give a voice to the voiceless and create a platform where what persons with lived experience say and share, matters
- End isolation from the world and connect mental health care user groups and movements globally to form a community of experts by experience and who are empowered to self-advocate and advocate on a broader and global scale
