Evidence-based interventions for global mental health: role and mission of a new Cochrane initiative

Corrado Barbui, Marianna Purgato, Rachel Churchill, Clive E Adams, Laura Amato, Geraldine Macdonald, Jenny McCleery, Silvia Minozzi, Rebecca Syed Sheriff Evidence-based interventions for global mental health: role and mission of a new Cochrane initiative

There are striking disparities in the provision of mental health care between rich and poor countries. In low- and middle-income countries more than 75% of people with serious mental health conditions receive inadequate care, despite substantial disability and functional impairment. A new Cochrane partnership, Cochrane Global Mental Health, will support the production, dissemination, access, and use of systematic reviews in mental health globally.

Terence J Quinn Forward thinking: where next for delirium prevention research?

A new Cochrane Review of case management offers a valuable information source for practitioners and researchers on rigorously studied case management interventions, although the findings remain mostly inconclusive. Before planning further studies, the next step should be a more thorough analysis of the available evidence to seek conclusions about components that seem to be most successful for relevant outcomes.

Several years old now, this World Health Organization proposition has been endorsed and adopted by a number of prominent individuals and organizations – among them the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the World Federation of Mental Health, the Pan American Health Organisation, the European Council of Ministers, Mental Health Europe, and the UK Royal College of Psychiatrists...
