Description

This report outlines the proposal for including mental healthcare in APEC economies’ agendas and provides an overview of each participant's issues. At the same time, it addresses community mental health models, psychosocial rehabilitation and financing implementation processes, strategies, and experiences. From a more theoretical approach, it describes the use of complex thinking systems in mental health planning. Finally, it gives a description of some investment initiatives in vulnerable populations, strategies to remove stigma, and global challenges and opportunities, and it offers an approach to promoting mental health in all public policies of the region. Evaluating production and use can be observed as an overarching theme in the improvement experiences of community mental health services.
