Community Mental Health Forums (CMHFs) support community inclusion and participation, increase access to mental health services, and raise mental health awareness, reducing stigma and discrimination towards people living with mental health and/or psychosocial disabilities. This good practice guide draws on CBM’s experience with CMHFs to document and share ideas, good practice and lessons learned about CMHFs in low and middle income countries. It provides case studies evidencing the success of CMHFs, and explores the importance of involving traditional and faith healers in mental health care.
