Advances in understanding and treatment of mental illness often don’t help those who need them most because of poorly developed mental health systems. Globally there is increasing attention to mental health legislation and policy, mental health system financing and governance, mental health service design implementation and evaluation, human resource development, and effective translation of research to inform mental health policy. International Journal of Mental Health Systems publishes the latest mental health research and health systems research, reviews and case studies, and so advances and shapes global mental health.

Globally there is increasing attention to mental health legislation and policy, mental health system financing and governance, mental health service design implementation and evaluation, human resource development, effective translation of research to inform mental health policies and programs. IJMHS is committed to promotion and protection of the human rights of people with mental illness.
