Part of a series published this week on on the cost-effectiveness of strategies for the prevention and control of NCDs and injuries in lower income settings, this article assesses the costs, effects and overall value for money of core interventions for addressing the burden of psychosis, affective disorders, epilepsy and hazardous alcohol use. Results indicate that the cost-effectiveness of strategies that could be undertaken varies widely. Reallocation of resources to cost-effective intervention strategies would increase health gain, save money and enable appropriate scaling-up of mental health services in low-resource settings.

Fourth Global Mental Health Summit

Nothing About Us, Without Us - Voices from the Global South

28th-29th November 2015

Movement For Global Mental Health is delighted to announce the fourth Global Mental Health Summit to be held at the TISS Campus in Mumbai, India on the 28th and 29th of November 2015. The focus of this year’s Global Health Summit, themed “Nothing About Us, Without Us”, will be driven mainly by persons living with mental health issues from different social, cultural and educational ecosystems. The aim is to bring to the forefront voices of individuals from marginalized backgrounds, those who are rarely represented in discussions related to the mental health agenda. 

We invite contributions (for both the scientific and non-scientific sessions that include theatre, short films, music, dance and other art forms) that highlight the issues faced by people living with mental health issues. People interested in attending and presenting at the Summit should contact the secreatariat at
