EMPOWER: Building the Mental Health Workforce

Visit: www.empower.care

Lack of skilled human resources is a major barrier restricting health care systems’ abilities to deliver psychosocial interventions.

  • We are building a digital platform called ‘EMPOWER’ through which providers can learn, master, and deliver evidence-based psychosocial treatments.
  • The world’s leading psychological treatment scientists are guiding the development of the initial curriculum and toolkit.
  • In the next five years, we aim to train over one million front-line workers to deliver psychological therapies for mood, anxiety, trauma-related, and addiction-related mental health problems.
