The World Health Organization (WHO) hosted its annual mhGAP Forum 10-11 October, 2016 in Geneva.  The  conference featured the launch of WHO’s group IPT for depression, a scalable guide for group IPT co-authored by Myrna Weissman, Lena Verdeli, and Kathleen Clougherty.  Their manual is based on work  conducted in Uganda that attends to the cultural context of IPT delivery and allows for groups to be led by trained non-professionals. Once released, the guide will be available in the public domain.
