Lancet Devotes Weekly Issue to Mental Health
August 21, 2009
In light of the Global Mental Health Summit held this week in Athens, Greece, the Lancet devotes its weekly issue to mental health. The issue seeks "to highlight challenges and achievements in the global campaign against mental illness," according to an editorial in the journal, and includes original research and commentary articles. The authors of the editorial conclude: "We and other members of the Movement for Global Mental Health believe that mental health should take an equal place next to other great global health programmes of the day, including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Join us" (8/22).
