Content Overview

Mental disorders in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) do not attract local, national or global health policy attention, although accounting for a considerable burden of disease. The majority of people with mental disorders do not receive evidence-based care, leading to chronicity, suffering and increased costs of care. Strengthening care and services for people with mental disorders is a priority and needs additional investment in human resources and piggy backing on existing public health programmes. This course explores the different concepts of mental health, in their respective cultural settings and addresses programme planning for this much neglected field of health affecting very marginalised populations.
