We collaborate with many international agencies.
We are members of:
Intercamhs - International Alliance for Child and Adolescent Mental Health and Schools
We are a founding member of Intercamhs, and Director Chris Bale is a former member of its Advisory Board. Intercamhs brings together academics and educators from all over the world, to share knowledge and promote good mental health in schools.
The NGO Committee on UNICEF brings together more than 80 international non-profit agencies that work for children.
The Federation tackles a wide range of issues relating to mental health. Its joint publication with the World Health Organisation, Mental Health Promotion: Case Studies from Countries, features Zippy’s Friends.
IASP provides a forum for professionals and volunteers who are working, in many different ways, to prevent suicide. Promoting mental health is an important step towards that goal. Our trustee Prof Brian Mishara is President of IASP.
We also have strong links with:
Partnership for Children is one of 76 NGOs participating in consultation on the WHO Comprehensive Mental Health Action Plan 2013-2020. We attend the annual mhGAP Forum in Geneva to give our input on the importance of mental health promotion for young children.
The Foundation promotes mental health worldwide. It publishes the International Journal of Mental Health Promotion and Advances in School Mental Health Promotion. It also organises the World Conferences on the Promotion of Mental Health and Prevention of Mental and Behavioural Disorders.SHE (formerly the European Network for Health Promoting Schools) is a joint initiative of the Council of Europe, the European Commission, and the World Health Organisation’s Regional Office for Europe.
Being based in the UK, we also subscribe to two national agencies involved in the promotion of children's mental health and emotional wellbeing:
Antidote campaigns for an emotionally literate society.
Young Minds is committed to improving the mental health of all children and young people in Britain.
In addition, we work closely with our partner agencies who run Zippy’s Friends around the world. These include government departments, education authorities, non-profit agencies, universities and colleges. You can find information about all these partners, and links to their websites (where possible), here.
