History of WFMH

Founded in 1948, the World Federation for Mental Health began with members, ‘not of individuals or countries, but of societies’ from 46 countries. Today, with members and contacts in over 90 countries, the organisation chronicles the emergence of a global movement, one that has tirelessly championed the cause of mental health awareness, shattered stereotypes around mental disorders, and kindled a beacon of hope for individuals worldwide. Let’s embark on a captivating voyage through time and unravel the historical roots of the WFMH!
