Integrating Mental Health Services into TB Programmes to accelerate prevention

Did you know that by integrating mental health services into TB treatment and care, we can avoid as many as 14 million TB cases? That’s more than the predicted number of cases for any year between now and 2030.

We therefore join those living with TB to call on governments, donors, civil society, and other key stakeholders to prioritise the integration of mental health services into TB programmes. We call on TB funders to prioritise mental health in their prevention plans: including the Global Fund and trusts and foundations such as the Gates Foundation and Wellcome. Prevention of new cases is possible, and a better quality of life for those living with TB is also within our reach. Here are some useful resources to support our advocacy

Mental health training material for adolescents and their caregivers

The World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF have published a new psychological intervention, Early Adolescent Skills for Emotions (EASE), to support adolescents affected by distress and their caregivers. 1 in 7 adolescents globally experience mental health conditions, which mostly go unseen and untreated. EASE is the first WHO-UNICEF psychological intervention to address the critical shortage of mental health care for adolescents experiencing distress.
