WMIF endeavours to stop discrimination against people facing mental health challenges. Its primary goal is to educate the general public about the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of mental diseases along with ensuring acceptance, rehabilitation and employment for the sufferers.
WMIF will facilitate the convergence of citizen group efforts in the mental health arena who can work purposefully towards a common cause. In doing so, it will engage governments, international partners, NGOs, celebrities and local heroes who have battled their condition with stoicness.
The Foundation has among its early goals:
“Advocacy and consensus building for bringing a relevant policy and statute framework, to propagate a participatory programming approach and to work as an independent oversight body.”
