APA-IUPsyS Global Mental Health Fellowship

The APA-IUPsyS Global Mental Health Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for a psychologist to spend one year in Geneva, Switzerland, at the World Health Organization (WHO), in the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse. The fellow will focus on one or more issues related to the WHO Mental Health Action Plan. Although the program provides the opportunity to work at WHO on mental health issues, this program does not provide full funding for the fellowship year. The fellow will receive modest support for additional living costs in Geneva and related travel. This support is intended to supplement the fellow’s regular source of income.

The program is designed to: 
  • Provide psychologists with exposure to and involvement with international global mental health policy and implementation.
  • Contribute to the more effective use of psychological knowledge and research in global mental health policy and implementation.
  • Broaden awareness about the value of socio-behavioral approaches to health and mental health in a global context.
The overall goal of the WHO Mental Health Action Plan is “to promote mental well-being, prevent mental disorders, provide care, enhance recovery, promote human rights and reduce the mortality, morbidity and disability for persons with mental disorders.” This goal is carried out through four major objectives to be developed and implemented within a framework that stresses human rights, multisectoral approaches, evidence-based practice, a life-span approach and empowerment of persons with mental disorders and psychosocial disabilities.

In this context, the fellow’s activities will focus on research related to one or more of these objectives:
  • Strengthen effective leadership and governance for mental health.
  • Provide comprehensive, integrated and responsive mental health and related services in community-based settings.
  • Implement strategies for promotion and prevention in mental health.
  • Strengthen information systems, evidence and research for mental health.
Mental health is construed broadly. It includes, but is not limited to behavioral health, clinical interventions (diagnosis and treatment), prevention and promotion, health systems issues and public policy for mental health.

The APA-IUPsyS Global Mental Health fellow will be assigned (seconded) to the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, at the WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Funding for the fellowship will include US$30,000 for living expenses in Geneva and related travel. No salary funds are provided. It is anticipated that the fellow will bring institutional or other core funding.

After selection, the fellow's specific research activities will be specified in a work plan, developed in consultation with the WHO Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, APA and IUPsyS.

  • Must be APA members or have applied for APA membership at the time of application, and hold a doctoral degree in psychology.
  • Must have demonstrated research expertise relevant to the WHO Mental Health Action Plan.
  • May be based in any country and must demonstrate resources for core funding during the fellowship year.
