What do we do?

The World Mental Health Organization (WMHO) is at the forefront of addressing the pressing global issues of health and mental health disparities. With a commitment to practical, evidence-based, and holistic strategies, we are dedicated to creating a world where everyone can access the care and support they need.

 

At WMHO, we understand that health and well-being encompass more than just medical care. We take a comprehensive approach that incorporates social, environmental, educational, and economic factors. By working closely with a multitude of community partners, we have developed comprehensive, evidence-based programs that not only address mental illness but also promote quality medical care, holistic wellness, and substance abuse treatment.

Our one-stop online resource center is accessible to people all over the world, bridging the gap for those in regions with limited or uncertain access to quality mental health, medical care, holistic wellness, and social and community services. We are proud to embrace the challenge of breaking down the barriers that hinder individuals from enjoying a good quality of life.

WMHO operates through multiple channels, including our home campus located on the east side of Detroit and various satellite locations established in collaboration with our strategic partners. These locations serve as hubs for a wide range of wrap-around social and community services, including mental health support, educational opportunities, job readiness training, skilled trades programs, lifestyle coaching, medical care, substance use treatment, maternal support, nutritional counseling, psychology, psychiatry, physical fitness programs, music therapy, alternative medicine, and holistic wellness services.

We believe in an all-hands-on-deck approach to health and well-being. WMHO is committed to going above and beyond to offer every possible means of comprehensive wellness and support to those in need. Our unwavering dedication to this cause drives us to constantly innovate and collaborate with partners worldwide to create a better, more inclusive world where everyone can lead a healthy and fulfilling life.

Perinatal Mental Health | Briefing | Health Affairs

Perinatal mental health is poorly addressed by the US health care system despite mental health conditions diagnosed in one of every five pregnant or postpartum people. The October 2021 issue of Health Affairs is mostly devoted to perinatal mental health: https://www.healthaffairs.org/maternal-health-and-perinatal-mental-health US Representative Lauren Underwood (IL), the co-founder and co-chair of the Black Maternal Health Caucus and a lead sponsor of the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021, and Ellen-Marie Whalen, Chief Population Health Officer at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in the US Department of Health and Human Services, participate in a Health Affairs virtual event on these issues. In addition, a select group of authors from the issue presented their work and took questions from the online audience. Participants include: US Representative Lauren Underwood, Illinois David Goodman, Team Lead, Maternal Mortality Prevention Team, Division of Reproductive Health, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on Prevention of Pregnancy-Related Mental Health Deaths: Data from 14 US Maternal Mortality Review Committees, 2008-2017 Clare Brown, Assistant Professor, Fay W.

Jump on in and get started on becoming legendary! Diet, nutrition, and mental health. What is the connection between them, how does our nutrition influence our mental health and emotions, and what are the steps we can take today to walk on a path towards proper brain health? Has your diet significantly affected your emotions, behaviors, or mental wellbeing? Are you seeking a powerful alternative to the never-ending cycle of prescriptions?
