WHO: Global Health Observatory: Mental Health

While more than 800,000 people die from suicide globally each year, the median amount of the health budget allocated to mental health in 2011 was 2.8%. In Afghanistan, six out of every 100,000 men committed suicide. In the United States, that number was 19. These and other data can be gleaned from the age-standardized suicide rates interactive graph on the World Health Organization’s Global Health Observatory website dedicated to issues of Mental Health. Additionally, the page provides links to reports on Policy and financing of mental health, Human resources (in terms of the number of psychiatrists available per 100,000 people in a given country), and Mental health care delivery.

New publications are available at the Scout Report!

Journal of Psychology and Psychotherapy

Academic psychologists publish good, empirical research all the time. But unless you belong to a large university database, it’s almost impossible to access. The Journal of Psychology and Psychotherapy, a peer-reviewed medical journal, seeks to address this problem by making research on mental health accessible to the general public on its free, open access website. Viewers can read the journal’s mission statement on the homepage before browsing Most Viewed Articles, Current Issue, Past Issues, and Special Issues. Keyword searches are easy and the results will offer related search suggestions based on journal name or even famous authors in the subject. The journal is available in both English and French.
