Prof Razzouk´s CV  (lattes)





Minds Up was created by Prof. Denise Razzouk to share knowledge on Mental Health Economics and on Mental Disorders targeting health professionals and students, researchers, health managers, government, general public, media, and enterprises. 

Our mission is to combat stigma against mental illness through capacity building and to spread scientific knowledge in non-technical language to all sectors of society. Also, we intend to boost the application of Health Economics in Mental Health Research and in National and Global Mental Health Policies, focusing on public health systems and on universal health coverage. Moreover, our work is guided by the same principles oriented to Sustainable Development Goals developed by The United Nations. 


Knowledge is the best tool:

for rational decision 

for freedom of choice

for human achievements

against ignorance and stigma

against inequity 


Minds up offers online and presential (on demand) courses (Mental Health Economics and Mental Health ) to different audiences(lay people, managers, researchers, mental health professionals).
