Online Competition to Radically Rethink Mental Health

Ashoka’s Changemakers and the Vulnerable Populations Portfolio of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) launched a global competition to explore innovations that allow individuals, families, communities, and society to move past narrow perceptions of mental health and expand our understanding and collective involvement in finding solutions.

The Rethinking Mental Health: Improving Community Wellbeing collaborative competition is building a platform that will give everyone the freedom to shatter outdated stigmas and stereotypes. This competition aims to push us closer to systems-changing innovations within the field of mental health, sparking compelling conversation, and extracting targeted solutions that radically take existing interventions to new heights.
