Global Mental Health 2021
“MY Mental Health is YOUR business and YOUR Mental Health is MY business.” Dr. Yvonne Larrier
Global Mental Health is at pandemic proportions and should be prioritized as such. Individuals across the globe, at almost every stage in their life span development are experiencing the effects of COVID-19 and all its variants.
Even prior to COVID-19 in 2020, the WHO in 2013 had estimated that by 2020 the #1 non-communicable global burden of disease would be depression. That has been multiplied exponentially due to the adverse physical, social, emotional, psychological, economic, and educational consequences of C-19.
In addition to these convergence of crises, we also saw and experienced and continue to experience the impact of adverse environmental and social factors which highlighted and continues to highlight disparities and gaps at every level of our communities and societies locally, nationally and globally beginning at the individual level/microsystem level, all the way to the chronosystem level.
No longer can we afford to create divisions among nations and use labels such as developed countries and developing countries when it comes to mental health. Because as the WHO says, ‘when it comes to mental health all countries are developing.”
The Global Center for Systemic Change Outcomes Research, Evaluation and Development(GCSCORED, Inc.) has been on the forefront of creating and increasing access to culturally responsive, de-stigmatized mental health interventions, and treatment since 2013. We have been engaged in educating, equipping and empowering laypersons and mental health practitioners at all levels to effectively utilize the Cultivating SEEDS System: our culturally responsive relationship capacity building Framework created to increase global mental health resources to all people groups, but with more intentionality toward the historically under-served, marginalized, invisible and voiceless.
GCSCORED’s purpose has been and continues to be relationship capacity building in individuals within systems, such as homes, schools, communities, businesses, organizations, and institutions. We believe that “as air is to life, so are social emotional skills to relationships, they are like the air we breathe.”
Inextricably linked to our purpose of relationship capacity building are several elements: 1) our mission, 2) Goals, and 3) our Why statement
What is the Why Statement?

There’s an African Proverb that says “the ruin of a nation begins in the homes of its people”
I want to flip this statement on its head and say “the success of a nation begins in the homes of people.” We are all engaged in at least one relationship, and that is the relationship with ourselves. Relating with ourselves and with each other is a common human experience,it is as common as the air we breathe.
What this proverb means is that “what is happening in our relationships at home with ourselves and others radiates implicitly and explicitly throughout the various ecosystems in which we are embedded for example, where we live, love, learn, earn, play and pray. What is happening at the “root” level, in our homes, has the very real potential to impact and even direct the mental health of the peoples of our nations. The essential growth elements that impact our relationships MUST be PRIORITIZED if we are to solve the global mental health pandemic that is staring us down, that we are facing currently.
Join GCSCORED as we educate, equip and empower our families, friends, neighbors, colleagues, classmates, partners,supervisors, employees, employers, etc. about the relationship skills that are foundational to each person experiencing a sense of purpose, hope, mental health and success. A successful nation is dependent on it’s individuals living purposeful, hopeful, mentally healthy and successful lives.
Remember: My Mental Health is your business and your mental health is my business.
One of GCSCORED’s goals is to educate, equip and empower laypeople (regular folks, parents, grandparents, etc.) across the globe to help themselves, their families, friends and communities with the MARKERS™ necessary to effectively solve challenges related to social and emotional health and wellness. This principle is based on task-sharing, a concept and practice frequently used in the field of public health. This type of peer support is critical, especially in these times of physical distancing and given the fact that many of the social and cultural norms, practices and attitudes of human interactions are being reconfigured.
