Mental Health in Developing Countries
The CIHLMU Center for International Health, the Global Mental Health GroupLMU at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, and the International Network for Cooperation in Mental Health (i.nez), are organizing the 7th International Symposium on “Global Mental Health – Mental Health in Developing Countries”. The symposium is open to all health professionals and students interested in this topic.
More than half a billion people worldwide have a neuropsychiatric disorder or are dependent on alcohol or drugs. About 80% of these people live in low- and middle-income countries and most of them do not receive appropriate treatment. Many are stigmatized and experience prejudice, social exclusion and frequent violations of their human rights. All of these factors cause serious psychological, physical, social and economic harm to the individuals, families and society.
Including mental health as an integral part of development is relatively new to the United Nations and its development partners. There is growing recognition within the international community that mental health is one of the most neglected yet essential development issues in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (WHO 2010).
The symposium intends to give an overview of mental health issues with reports from Africa, Asia and from a WHO perspective.
You are cordially invited to participate in the 7th International Symposium “Global Mental Health – Mental Health in Developing Countries”.
