Thank you to Adrian Sell, CEO, BasicNeeds for sending us the announcement regarding the recent merger of BasicNeeds with CBM. Please see below for more information on this exciting merger.
People living with mental illness in low-and middle-income countries are some of the world’s most marginalised people. Mental health conditions such as depression are the leading cause of disability worldwide, often causing immense suffering and preventing people from earning a living or participating in their community. BasicNeeds is therefore excited to announce our merger with leading disability organisation, CBM UK thus creating a new strong global voice on mental health in development.
