New Paradigms for Behavioral and Mental Health Care

Report from the fourth collaboration with Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science now online

The report from the Salzburg Global program New Paradigms for Behavioral and Mental Health Care is now available is now available online to read, download and share.

In December 2014, Salzburg Global Seminar, together in partnership with the Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science at Dartmouth College, and with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Robert Bosch Stiftung, convened the program to help 68 participants from 17 nations design their country's future behavioral health care systems in full knowledge of the successes and mistakes of the West, as well as cutting-edge developments in human rights, health care delivery science, and behavioral health technologies. 

As report author, Manish Mishra explains, “The Salzburg Global Vision calls for Imagination, Sustainability and Justice. This [program] could be seen as a focused meditation on those three programmatic clusters...  The people who assembled in Salzburg for Session 536 are deeply committed to the working with mental illness in important ways... Although we are working on systems-level care with contexts that reach across the planet, maybe this all is built on one simple premise: every single person matters. None of this is possible unless people rigorously care about the wellbeing of relative strangers. Perhaps this is the guiding theme that emerged from this week and will help inform the upcoming health care sessions in this Salzburg Global series.”
