citiesRISE is a multi-stakeholder initiative challenging cities around the world to turn the tide on mental health and wellbeing. Through research and on-the-ground experience, citiesRISE is learning and sharing what makes cities and communities mental-health friendly, especially for young people within underserved populations. We are mobilizing collective action in cities around the world and building a global movement to spark and connect city and youth led action in places around the world.
The mission is to mobilize leadership, resources and practical action through proven methodologies of collective action and a network approach. citiesRISE was founded in 2016 and is now positioned to dramatically deepen its impact through the expansion of current initiatives and the launch of new global programming to bring meaningful and sustainable progress to communities across the world. citiesRISE has established substantive partnerships to catalyze collective actions across sectors to fundamentally transform the story of mental health around the world. The significance of citiesRISE was featured at the World Economic Forum’s 2018 Annual Meeting.
