Spaeth-Rublee, Brigitta; Pincus, Harold A.; Silvestri, Fran; Peters, Janet

The International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership (IIMHL) ( is a unique international collaborative that focuses on improving mental health and addiction services. IIMHL is a collaboration of eight countries including Australia, England, Canada, New Zealand, Republic of Ireland, Scotland, Sweden and USA.
The project, “Measuring Quality of Mental Health Care: An International Comparison”, was initiated by a group of clinical experts under the auspices of the IIMHL Clinical Leaders Group. Led by Prof. Harold Pincus from Columbia University in New York, the project aims to not only raise awareness among clinicians and policymakers regarding the quality of care of the mental health systems they are working in, but ultimately to be able to compare system performance across countries to inform initiatives for transformation of mental health services.
