Global Mental Health provides an outline on the field of mental health with a particular focus on Latin America and the Spanish-speaking world.

The book details evidence-based approaches being implemented globally, highlighting pros and cons of this approach and presents ongoing state of the art research on major mental disorders that is taking place in Latin America including Alzheimer's, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia and other Psychoses.
