Global Mental Health: Addressing the Global Burden of Depression

Symposium on 24. April 2014

at the UCL Institute for Global Health


Grand Challenge of Global Health

Depression is one of the world’s leading causes of disability, but according to the World Health Organisation, only a small proportion of those affected have access to treatment, while stigma and misunderstanding are problems everywhere. In this panel discussion, hear how the experience of depression is a global phenomenon – and what we can learn, worldwide, about how to treat it.
