Excerpt
As the world becomes increasingly aware of the massive burden associated with mental disorders and takes steps to expand and improve mental health care, the need for accurate and up-to-date information is crucial. Information is required in two distinct areas: the disease burden and the available resources. Many decades of work have resulted in substantial information on the extent and burden of mental diseases. This includes information on how to obtain reliable and valid diagnoses; studies on the incidence, prevalence and course of disorders; national and international classification systems; and estimates of associated disability. However, very little is known about the resources available to respond to this burden. What resources exist within countries for mental health care? How do the resources compare to the needs? Where are the significant gaps? What are the differences across regions and income groups of countries? While these questions are asked frequently, there have been no clear answers. What is known about mental health resources pertains only to a few developed countries. There is almost no information from the vast majority of countries. Because studies have used different units of measurement, the information that is available is not comparable across countries.
