What We Believe 

The Global Alliance for Behavioral Health and Social Justice informs policy, practice, and research regarding issues of behavioral health, social justice, and well-being. We are further committed to:

  • Promoting social justice and human rights and reducing disparities in health and social outcomes;     
  • Emphasizing effective strategies for promotion and prevention of behavioral disorders as well as intervention and treatment; 
  • Promoting adaptation and positive mental health and well-being;
  • Applying principles of social justice to policy formation, community action, systems change, and clinical practice;
  • Using a bioecological and social determinants framework (including individuals, families, and communities) with multiple levels of analysis and action, across diverse settings and sectors; and
  • Focusing on vulnerable populations and marginalized individuals and groups.
