We will describe why and how Dimagi is developing digital solutions to improve mental health and wellbeing in Lower- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs), and outline the needs for more resources and collaborations in this area. There is a staggering unmet need for mental health care and is intertwined with almost all other global development goals, including the SDGs on reducing poverty and providing good health and wellbeing. Dimagi is building open source, re-usable digital components, including for non-specialist providers delivering mental health care, conversational agents to deliver mental health and wellbeing content, and client-facing apps to help people practice. We will outline our next steps for this work, and how more resources and partnerships can accelerate it.
