9780195113112: World Mental Health: Problems and Priorities in Low-Income Countries

This timely volume analyzes the growing burden of mental, behavioral and social problems in low-income countries, examines the sources of the substantial morbidity rates and their relation to development, and assesses current efforts to cope with them. It identifies opportunities for effective mental health interventions, methods of treatment, culturally appropriate prevention programs, and sound policy formation. It relates the mental health consequences of violence, dislocation, poverty, and the disenfranchisement of women to the most pressing economic, political, and environmental problems of our time.

Review:


"This Report puts the issue of mental health and well-being firmly on the international agenda. It reminds us of the great human suffering caused by mental illness....Let us, therefore, respond to this World Mental Health Report not simply by blessing it; let us take its recommendations, and act on them."--Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Secretary General of the United Nations,
