Format: Paperpack


Social Entrepreneurship and Mental Health in Low- and Middle-Income Countries is a practical resource for people who are developing interventions to address mental illness and its consequences for individuals, families and communities, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. The guide is built on a series of case studies of organizations around the globe that are leaders in social entrepreneurship in mental health. In-depth interviews with social entrepreneurs, frontline workers, clients and families reveal how social entrepreneurship can transform innovative ideas into effective services in settings where health disparities are pervasive.

Each chapter ends with a series of discussion questions, which readers can use to assess their skills, attitudes, policies and behaviours around applying social entrepreneurship principles to their work.
