A global social enterprise championing mental health and a pioneering new mental health models
To provide treatment and livelihoods to those living with mental illness, while breaking the associated stigma
By training mental health professionals, establishing local self-help groups and livelihood opportunities, and encouraging the reintegration of mentally ill individuals into society
GDI worked with BasicNeeds on the development of its impact scaling strategy. Together, we tackled the key challenge of BasicNeeds’ new organizational structure. This involved the redesign of BasicNeeds into a global association network, integrating new operating models such as a franchise for mental health and prioritizing key pathways for national scale-ups.
