The personal and social impact of mental illness is huge. Although there is now good evidence for what works in delivering effective treatment in response to this burden, very few Low and Middle Income (LAMI) countries are delivering such services. This dichotomy was outlined in a series of papers in the Lancet journal in 2007, which explored the state of global mental health services. The Movement for Global Mental Health is a response to the call for action by the series' authors. It was launched on World Health Day in October 2008.
