Text of RA Symposium Retha program - NVTG symposium several strategies for addressing this mental health gap

  • SYMPOSIUM

    A step toward bridging the mental health gap in low and middle income countries

    The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that low and middle income countries are confronted

    with a serious “mental health gap”, indicating an enormous disparity between the number of

    individuals in need of mental health care and the availability of professionals to provide such care

    (WHO, 2010). Traditional forms of mental health services are therefore not feasible. In this

    symposium several strategies for addressing this mental health gap in low and middle income

    countries will be presented from a clinical, cultural, research and dissemination point of view. In

    addition, Retha Arjadi will present the results of her studies as part of her thesis on global mental

    health including a meta-analysis on low intensity interventions by non-specialists for mental health

    conditions, and a randomized controlled trial evaluating the effect of such a low intensity

    intervention using technology with support of lay counselors in depression in Indonesia.
