Title: Mental health atlas 2011: resources for mental health in the Eastern Mediterranean Region
Authors: World Health Organization, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean
Issue Date: 2013
Language: English
Abstract: Mental disorders have a profound effect on individuals, their families and society, and are responsible for 11% of disease burden in the Eastern Mediterranean Region yet. WHO’s Project Atlas 2011 has collected and compiled information about mental health resources in countries around the world. This regional review incorporates region-specific data, presenting comparisons with other regions, analysing countries with similar health system characteristics within the Region, and providing concise summary sheets for each country that provided data for the Atlas 2011 Project. It is hoped that this will assist stakeholders in the countries of the Region to identify gaps in current provision and inform decisions around increasing resources to scale up services for mental health
