Note from Kelly O'Donnell:

One of the side events at the WHO World Health Assembly this week was Promoting Global Mental Health: The Role of Public, Private, and Non-Profit Sectors. It was excellent and was organised by the Public Health Agency of Canada. One of the resources mentioned in the presentation on the role of faith-based organisations was the March-April 2013 issue of Health Progress (Volume 94, number 2). The special theme was Mental Health: Breaking Down Barriers (10 articles).
.
Furthermore, one of the articles in this special issue is Global Mental Health and Well-Being: Best Practices from U.S. Catholic Health Care by ROBIN CONTINO, LCSW-C, SHANNON SENEFELD, Psy.D. AND KATIE JANUARIO. A helpful feature of this brief article is that it discusses the Global (Comprehensive) Mental Health Acton Plan (which at the time of writing was still in its draft stage) with regards to how it is being applied/referenced, I think many of us can follow suit too in terms of describing our MH work in terms of the Action Plan.
