Críticas:

This volume is a welcome addition to the literature on global mental health. It is likely to be informative to both students, and practitioners. (Samuel O. Okpaku, MD, PHD; Journal of Clinical psychiatry 76:8, August 2015)

There seems very little in the realm of worldwide considerations of mental health that this excellent textbook does not cover in a readable and evidence-informed way. I imagine it will become the bible of global mental health and therefore essential reading for practitioners in that field. Occupational health practitioners will find much of interest and certainly something of relevance to their work within its pages. (Occupational Medicine)

This is a book that lends itself to public health action. It's a great alternative to the decades that focused on classification and diagnosis, thus keeping mental health thinking focused on 'medical treatments' instead of prevention. (Public Health Today)

Reseña del editor:

Global health is an area for study, research and practice that places a priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide. Global mental health is the application of these principles to the domain of mental ill-health. The most striking inequity is that concerning the disparities in provision of care and respect for human rights of people living with mental health problems (MHP) between rich and poor countries. Low and middle income countries (LMIC) are home to over 80% of the global population, but command less than 20% of the share of the mental health resources. The consequent 'treatment gap' is in itself a contravention of basic human rights. Even where treatment is provided, far too often this falls far below minimum acceptable standards. Failure to provide basic necessities such as adequate nourishment, clothing, shelter, comfort and privacy, unauthorized and unmonitored detention, shackling and chaining are all well documented abuses, described recently as a 'failure of humanity'.

The emergence of the discipline of global mental health as one of the most dynamic fields of global health underscores the need for this textbook for students of the discipline. Global mental health was cited by the NIMH Director in his 2012 year ending blog as one of the major advances in mental health in 2012 and by one of the most influential figures in psychiatry and anthropology, Arthur Kleinman, as the exciting future of academic psychiatry (Br J Psychiatry, December 2012). The scope of the book is to cover two major aspects of the field: its scientific foundations and its practice and opens with an original account charting the history of the field from antiquity to its most recent developments. The language and content is geared towards a wide audience of practitioners and students of global mental health, including those who do not have any previous training in a clinical mental health specialty. This textbook, edited by four of the field's most widely acknowledged champions, with 20 chapters authored by over 30 global leaders of the field from diverse institutions and countries, is aimed to be the definitive text of this dynamic new discipline.
