Link – Global Mental Health Report Cites ‘Pitifully Small’ Support, Looks For Solutions

posted in: Links | 0

I like the wording from the authors on this. The longer we go without doing much more than make some small changes to the way we view mental health issues across the world, the more we really are ignoring millions of our fellow human beings:

Threaded throughout the 45-page report is a lament that the world is ignoring millions of suffering people.

That neglect is reflected in “pitifully small” levels of financial support from governments and assistance groups for research and patient care, say the 28 mental health researchers, clinicians and advocates from across five continents who authored the report.
