Description

Project Atlas of the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse is designed to collect, compile and disseminate data on mental health and neurology resources in the world. Resources include policies, programmes, financing, services, professionals, treatment and medicines, information systems and related organizations. These resources are necessary to provide services and care for people with mental, behavioural and neurological diseases/disorders.

The primary objective of the project is to raise public and professional awareness of the inadequacies of existing resources and services and the large inequities in their distribution at national and global level. The information is also useful in planning for enhancement of resources.

This website presents updated information from the project Atlas; at this time, subprojects on Mental Health and Neurology are included. The website allows users to find and display global, regional and country data, as well as to compare countries and WHO regions and prepare tables, charts and maps for downloading.
