citiesRISE is a global platform committed to transforming the state of mental health policy and practice in cities and beyond to meet the mental health needs of populations across the world. To achieve significant, measurable improvements in mental health – especially among young people – citiesRISE is scaling up proven methodologies and tools and harnessing the skills and energy of experts and communities. Our vision is a world in which cities enable young people to grow up, develop resilience, and lead productive lives through mainstreaming mental health across sectors.

citiesRISE proposes a multi-component model for transforming youth mental health in cities around the world, centered on youth mobilization, scale-up of evidence-informed interventions that address the dimensional aspects of mental health (maintaining wellness through mental health promotion and preventive interventions, early intervention for youth at risk, and access to quality care for young people in need of mental health services); appropriate and innovative use of technology to support mental health, and transformation of specialist practice for community orientation and youth-centered focus.
