Global Mental Health

By Purpose

All of our projects are guided by a particular objective, with the methods and populations selected to achieve the defined purpose. Our projects are done in collaboration with in-country and local service providers and researchers who often want to learn from the research, and also learn how to conduct the research itself.  To facilitate this learning, we developed a Design, Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation (DIME) approach that has guided many of our projects. Each activity with the DIME approach is defined by a particular purpose:
