The enormous health and social burdens associated with mental disorders  have global reach and persist in the setting of unmet needs. To address  these, the pipeline of global mental health trainees must be expanded  and nurtured as the next generation of practitioners, investigators, and  educators advance innovation in mental health prevention, promotion,  and health delivery. This book offers a much-needed introduction to the  rapidly evolving field of global mental health. The editors bring their  extensive expertise and experience in global mental health research,  practice, and training which includes working in academic and non-profit  settings, building collaborations, and teaching hundreds of students  and trainees. The volume's twelve chapters--authored by over sixty  contributors from multiple disciplines--offer a breadth of content that  comprises an introductory framework.

This volume is an essential  read for learners and educators who seek to explore or deepen their  interest in the field of global mental health. Its orientation to  fundamentals of practice and training and contextualization with social  science perspectives will also be invaluable to health professionals,  social scientists, policymakers, and other professionals who are  invested in training the next generation of global mental health  practitioners.
