Project ATLAS is aimed at collecting, compiling and disseminating information on mental health resources in the world. This volume presents the available information on mental health resources as individual country profiles. These profiles illustrate the deficiency and uneven distribution of resources across countries. A substantial enhancement in mental health resources is needed urgently in a majority of countries to respond to the existing and increasing burden of mental disorders.
