citiesRISE is a new multi-stakeholder initiative formed as a response to the concern that, despite the existence of effective models, existing fragmented and small-scale efforts fail to address the rising tide of mental health problems globally. The mission of citiesRISE is to mobilize leadership, resources and practical action by scaling evidence-based approaches and promising models for mental health through a network of cities, particularly of young people within underserved populations, 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 recently featured at the World Economic Forum’s 2018 Annual Meeting. Learn more at cities-rise.org.
