Held in New Delhi, India, on 23 and 24 October 2006, this Congress was a unique event. Attended by researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers, the event's mission was focused on increasing access to mental health care for the world's unserved. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 450 million people worldwide live with unmet mental health care needs. Epidemiologic data suggest that failing to attend to this need yields high economic and social costs.
NBCC International and our distinguished panel of guests have agreed to post Congress-related materials on the World Wide Web in the hopes it will increase understanding of the profound need for increased access. Please use the navigation menu above to access Congress-related information.
