BENEFITING: Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
The Mount Sinai Program in Global Mental Health strives to enhance access to mental health services for people in East Harlem and around the world. We want to make sure anyone, anywhere around the world can get help with their mental health needs, and so we have alot of work to do. We work towards our aspirations through program development, training and education, with research done in support of these service and educational imperatives. Based at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City under the aegis of the Arnhold Global Health Institute, we operate as what we like to call a "walk-in mental health clinic for the world" and try to assist any low resource setting in our own country or around the world that asks for our assistance with improving its ability to provide mental health care. Currently we work in the following countries: Belize, Saint Vincent/Grenadines, Liberia, post-3/11 Japan, India, Haiti, and Costa Rica. One of the only psychiatrists from the Caribbean nation of Grenada has just "walked in"-- she visited us and asked for help with improving the state of mental health care in her country. Now, we need to visit Grenada and decide what needs to be done and what we can do. We are raising funds to send one of our psychiatrists there as soon as possible. Please support us!
