Founded in 1948, the mission of our international organization includes:
- The prevention of mental and emotional disorders;
- The proper treatment and care of those with such disorders;
- And the promotion of mental health.
The Federation, through its members and contacts in many countries, has responded to international mental health crises through its role as the only worldwide grassroots advocacy and public education organization in the mental health field. Its organizational and individual membership includes mental health workers of all disciplines, consumers of mental health services, family members, and concerned citizens.
