WHO South-East Asia Journal of Public Health Depression and suicide: towards new paradigms in prevention and care
PDF File Size: 2.42 MB | Download   
Mental, neurological and substance-use disorders are common worldwide, affecting every community and age group, and across countries of all income levels. While 14% of the global burden of disease is attributed to these disorders, almost 75% of individuals affected in many low-income countries do not have access to treatment and care.1 The World Health Organization (WHO) South-East Asia Region, home to just over one quarter of the world’s population, has a disproportionately large share of the global disease burden for mental disorders.
This action plan reflects a paradigm shift in the fundamental guiding principles for prevention, management and care for people with mental disorders and recognizes the essential role of mental well-being in achieving health for all people.
The action plan is based on a life-course approach; promotes equity through universal health coverage; and underscores that mental disorders frequently lead individuals and families into poverty.2 It has close conceptual and strategic links to other global
initiatives, including the Global strategy to reduce the harmful use of alcohol,3 and Workers’ health: global plan of action.
