Professor Amartya Sen

Nobel Laureate in Economics

On the occasion of the launch of the Movement for Global Mental Health in 2007, Amartya Sen made the following endorsement:

”Mental disorder is a hugely neglected problem in the developing countries. It is wonderful that The Lancet has collaborated with a remarkable group of scholars and practitioners to work out what steps need to be taken to remedy the neglect. The results of their work and the attention they are generating are already having a significant impact. I am sure this continuing work will succeed in making a big difference to the lives of some of the most deprived people in the world.”
