21st Century Global Mental Health
Jones & Bartlett Publishers, Aug 14, 2012 - Medical - 399 pages
Nearly five hundred million people worldwide suffer from neuropsychiatric disorders, representing, in aggregate, 14% of the global burden of disease in low, middle and high income countries. Although there have been notable scientific advances in the global mental health domain, challenges still remain in knowledge transmission and application, as well as in access to care and in eradicating shame, stigma, and discrimination. 21st Century Global Mental Health serves as a reliable and authoritative text on the subject of global mental health and its integration with public health and primary care. The book thoroughly examines the progress to date and the challenges that still remain. In five sections, it explores: • Global Mental Health Epidemiology and Diagnostic Systems • The Determinants of Health/Mental Health • Populations’ Health/Mental Health • Evaluating and strengthening health/mental health systems • Human Rights, Stigma, Mental Health Policy and the Media 21st Century Global Mental Health is an equally valuable resource for graduate students, educators and practitioners in public health, mental health and primary care as well as a reference text for policymakers. Grounded in theory, the book uses a systemic, systematic, collaborative and integrative approach and offers practical applications and implementations relevant to education and training, services, research, and policy.
