Global Plan of Action on Social Determinants of Health (2012) covers better governance for health and development, increased participation in policy making and implementation, reorientation of the health sector towards reducing health inequities, strengthening global governance and collaboration, monitoring progress and increasing accountability, and social determinants. Many of the risks and vulnerabilities for mental health problems are common to other health problems. Implementation of the Global Mental health Action Plan addresses the key areas covered in the Action Plan on the Social Determinants of Health and not only contributes to improved mental health, but also makes a positive contribution in tackling the social determinants of health more generally.
