RAGMHI works towards developing a shared vision among interested Rotarians worldwide for creating an environment that promotes positive mental health to help children, adults and families lead meaningful and productive lives. Its mission is to act as a worldwide resource for Rotarians in the field of mental health and mental illness to promote, protect, restore, and to help re-build the lost human capital to make a happier and healthier world.

Our health is everything. Yet 400 million people in the world can’t afford or don’t have access to basic health care. We believe good health care is everyone’s right...including mental health!

Disease results in misery, pain, and poverty for millions of people worldwide. That’s why treating and preventing disease is so important to us. We lead efforts both large and small. We connect you with projects in underserved communities struggling with mental health care access happening in all parts of our world. We support community workers, peer leaders, clinicians, doctors, families, schools, workplaces, and governments working together to improve lives.

Under this Area of Focus, other Rotarians combat diseases like malaria, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes,  polio while our Rotarian Action Group focuses on Mental Health. Prevention is important, which is why we also focus on mental health education and bringing people routine screenings.


Change communities with other Rotarians, clubs and districts by volunteering on a project.


We work with Rotary clubs, districts and other organizations of all sizes to accomplish even more.  If you can't give of your time, choose a project for your donation.
