Description: Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series

Neuropsychiatric disorders account for a significant proportion of the burden of non-communicable disease in high-, middle-, and low-income countries. Yet marked inequities in the financing of health services and the supply of human resources for mental health care are evident between countries and within countries. Global mental health research requires that investigators address questions of equity while acknowledging the global economic, political, and cultural interconnections that shape the experience of mental illness and the lives of people with mental illness. Consequently, researchers must engage with populations affected by poverty, displacement, and migration, and recognize the social consequences of global events on local communities. Within countries, mental health inequities must be examined through the complex relationships of socioeconomic status, culture, sex, gender, genetics, race, and ethnicity. A global research perspective can facilitate the exploration of the underlying mechanisms that produce differences and disparities in diverse populations.

Abstract: (CIT): Neuropsychiatric disorders account for a significant proportion of the burden of non-communicable disease in high-, middle-, and low-income countries. Yet marked inequities in the financing of health services and the supply of human resources for mental health care are evident between countries and within countries. Global mental health research requires that investigators address questions of equity while acknowledging the global economic, political, and cultural interconnections that shape the experience of mental illness and the lives of people with mental illness. Consequently, researchers must engage with populations affected by poverty, displacement, and migration, and recognize the social consequences of global events on local communities. Within countries, mental health inequities must be examined through the complex relationships of socioeconomic status, culture, sex, gender, genetics, race, and ethnicity. A global research perspective can facilitate the exploration of the underlying mechanisms that produce differences and disparities in diverse populations.
