The Lancet Commission on Global Mental Health

PatelCheck out the recently released report from the Lancet Commission on Global Mental Health and Sustainable Development, led by Dr. Vikram Patel. The commission explains that inaction on the mental health crisis will cost the world $16 Trillion by 2030. Much of the harm caused by inaction is preventable to people, communities and economies.  A shift to community-based care is recommended. As Dr. Patel emphasized at Coming Together for Action, everyone has “the right to be protected, the right to receive care, and the right to dignity and freedom”.
