Vikram Patel: Mental health for all by involving all

Nearly 450 million people are affected by mental illness worldwide. In wealthy nations, just half receive appropriate care, 

but in developing countries, close to 90 percent go untreated because psychiatrists are in such short supply. Vikram 

Patel outlines a highly promising approach -- training members of communities to give mental health interventions, 

empowering ordinary people to care for others.

Vikram Patel helps bring better mental health care to low-resource communities -- by teaching ordinary people to deliver 

basic psychiatric services.
