[Comment] Sustainable development and global mental health—a Lancet Commission

In 2007, The Lancet published a groundbreaking Series on global mental health that ended with a call to action to scale up services for people with mental health problems guided by the twin principles of the right to evidence-based care and the right to dignity.1 This Series helped catalyse a movement that has raised the profile of mental health in public policies and promoted research, capacity building, and delivery of mental health care worldwide. The Series also influenced the launch of the Grand Challenges in Global Mental Health,2 which, in turn, inspired substantial funding commitments.
