Our Team, Partners, and Leadership

The dramatic shift necessary to address challenges in mental health globally requires systems-level change that can only be achieved by the large-scale alignment and coordination of collective action. The citiesRISE platform is a global collaboration among partners, supported through a rigorous multi-stakeholder initiative structure. citiesRISE is the only platform that brings together international and national leaders in mental health to drive a new level of progress through its networks, experience, and expertise at previously unattainable scale.


Governance: As a multi-stakeholder initiative, citiesRISE is guided by support and oversight from a Steering Committee and an Advisory Council. Both groups benefit from the insight of thought leaders across countries and sectors.
