WHO worked very closely with the International Council of Nurses (ICN) to collect information on nurses in mental health. The publication presents the best available information on the availability, education, training and roles of nurses in mental health globally.

The target readership of this Atlas includes policy-makers and planners in ministries of health and education, professionals in public health, mental health and nursing, and nongovernmental organizations interested and active in these areas. The Atlas may also be useful to students of public health, mental health and nursing.
