Abstract

International momentum in global mental health reform is building, responding to overwhelming evidence of unmet need in high, middle and low income countries alike, and powerful economic arguments that mental health care represents the best value for money. Yet adequate investment remains an elusive goal, with the treatment gap as wide as ever. We have long argued that new paradigms that dispel stigma, open up early access, safeguard hope, and build expertise and quality based on the best available evidence, must be embraced and scaled up in real world settings. The growing success of prototypical evidence‐based early psychosis models in many parts of the world has paved the way for a more definitive reform paradigm, one which links transdiagnostic early intervention with a decisive focus on young people.
