Mental Health: Global Challenges of XXI Century

Main objectives

  • to attract attention of researchers and policy-makers to urgent problems of MHC
  • to provide a platform for exchange of ideas and development of academic and non-academic network of MHC researchers, practitioners and policy-makers
  • to promote high quality research on MH in developing countries and countries in transition
  • to investigate solutions of specific issues of MHC in transdisciplinary and multicultural aspects
The problem of mental health сare (MHC) in the contemporary world becomes global with many negative consequences. Thus, according to the World Health Organization, mental and behavioral disorders are extremely common and affect up to 25% of all people in different periods of their lives. The WHO notes that in the future, given the aging population and worsening social problems, the number of cases will increase considerably. Simultaneously, each country in the world faces significant hindrances in both socio-psychological and economic aspects of the MHC system. No country has yet completely solved this problem. This creates an urgent need in joint efforts towards searching for solutions of common problems.

  • Inter- and transdisciplinarity to address issues in Global Mental Health

The world of Global Mental Health is wide, broad and complex, with majority of the of the issue surpassing the border of the single discipline. Among the professional disciplines needed to address the raising problems within Global Mental Health are: psychology, psychiatry, public health, medicine, health systems, sociology, anthropology, epidemiology and many others.

Due to the complexity of the issues, it is increasingly important to ensure collaboration and studies that are implementing a broad range of methods and are assessing the problem from several angles and points of view. Moreover, it is important to start working with transdisciplinary methods that ensure that all stakeholders are included in the research process.
