Pamela Y. Collins, National Institute of Mental Health, USA

In her talk, Pamela Y. Coolins argues that we have to look at mental disorders from a global perspective. Poverty, violence and migration have different effects on the mental health of the population in different countries. Collins is calling for a true collaboration between rich and poor countries, and for engaging the global public health community. Collins argues that this is the only way to better understand the causes of mental disorders and to fight them.
