For a safer world
WORLD MENTAL HEALTH COALITION
FORMERLY NATIONAL COALITION OF CONCERNED MENTAL HEALTH EXPERTS
Meet the 37 authors of the new book and thousands of other professionals who have come together in historically unprecedented ways to offer our consensus view that Donald Trump’s mental state presents a clear and present danger to the world.
An ethics conference on the topic at Yale School of Medicine in 2017 drew national attention and led to the first book, which became an instant New York Times bestseller and the Washington Post’s “most courageous book of the year.” Demands for an update gave rise to a second book, which will be released on March 19, 2019. Meanwhile, we have become the nation’s first major mental health professionals-only organization to address the issue of dangerous mental instability in the highest office of the land. Joining with our international partners, we have recently renamed ourselves the World Mental Health Coalition.
While Mr. Trump in the office of the U.S. presidency is our greatest and most immediate concern, we are also working toward prevention by helping humanity to build for itself a healthier and more sustainable world where impaired leaders are less likely to rise to power. While we can assess societal mental health, we cannot improve it on our own. Multidisciplinary partnerships are necessary to that end, and we invite you to join us in this endeavor. Our first action is a multidisciplinary conference, to occur on March 19, 2019, in Washington, DC. For more information or to register, please click here.
