Including mental health in the global health and development agenda

Why are mental disorders and substance use disorders treated so much differently than other health conditions? This is just one of the many questions that the World Bank Group, World Health Organization and other international partners will pose at their upcoming event — Out of the Shadows: Making Mental Health a Global Development Priority — on April 13th -14th , as part of the 2016 WBG/IMF Spring Meetings.

In 2015, the increasing demand for mental health care services by university students raised a huge concern amongst teachers, parents and society in general. In fact, the Centre for Collegiate Mental Health (CCMH) released a report that included the participation of 139 college and university counselling centres, and more than 100,000 students seeking mental health care during the academic year 2014/2015.
