Description: Every year, more than 450 million people around the globe suffer from a mental health condition, but in many places fewer than 10% of them have access to mental health services. International psychology professionals seek to bridge that gap through understanding, education, and outreach.
They may work in a variety of organizational environments and cultural settings, conducting research to better understand socio-cultural differences; developing and applying culturally competent organizational practices; supporting mental health services to underserved populations or those suffering due to cultural crisis or natural disasters; launching grassroots initiatives to improve access to services; advocating and raising awareness about international mental health needs; and working with immigrant and refugee populations at home and abroad.
