Thank you for this article. It is encouraging to see WB interest and commitment to join forces with other organizations trying to move mental health up in their policy agenda. Integrating mental health in general health is a key component to ensure that those suffering from mental disorders receive the due attention and care.
There are many good examples and initiatives going on in low- and middle-income countries, where situations of abandonment can be reverted with governments’ commitment and support. The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) is actually collaborating with countries to answer appropriately to the mental health needs of their populations.
