Global Mental Health and Development

Edited by: Prof Harry Minas

This series of articles in International Journal of Mental Health Systems  explores the ways in which the concerns and objectives of global mental health overlap with and contribute to the objectives and promise of the post-2015 sustainable development agenda. They critically examine the assertion that is the title of the Movement for Global Mental Health position statement on mental health in the post-2015 development agenda – that Mental health is essential to achieve sustainable development.
