Description

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has adopted a resolution that focuses on the global burden of mental disorders and the need for a comprehensive, coordinated response from health and social sectors at the country level.

United States of America and Switzerland supported the resolution moved by India at the just-concluded 130th executive board meeting of the WHO.

Mental disorders account for 13 per cent of the global burden of the diseases and, in keeping with the latest thinking, the resolution recognises the importance of early identification, care and recovery, the problems of stigma, poverty and homelessness and the need for community-based intervention including deinstitutionalised care.
