Thanks for this blog, Patricio.  Since the header / tagline for these pages is Investing in Health, I thought I should make a link to a recent (and brief) WHO report on Investing in mental health: evidence for action: www.who.int/mental_health/publications/financing/investing_in_mh_2013 . This sets out some of the main conceptual arguments for investing in mental health - public health and economic burden, human rights protection, equity and financial protection, cost-effectiveness - and the evidential basis in support of them. A rather convincing case can be made.
 
Best wishes and see you soon, Dan Chisholm
