Abstract

Global Mental Health (GMH) is an emerging field of scientific education, research, advocacy, and intervention that takes a worldwide perspective of classifiable mental, neurological,and substance misuse disorders.1 A sustainable and effective GMH service reduces cross-border threats and human security vulnerabilities while promoting resilience and capabilities of individuals and the wider community.spikes in communities acutely stressed by post-conflict environments. In addition to the direct harm domestic violence afflicts on its victims, it also leads to wider levels of criminal activity in the community and thus further impairs the community’s return to preconflict baseline.
