[Comment] Offline: The message of mental health

One entirely avoidable and indefensible tragedy of the global response to non-communicable diseases has been its extraordinary failure to embrace mental health. Instead, advocates and international institutions, such as WHO, have preferred to emphasise the simple (and simplistic) message of “four-by-four”—four key diseases (heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and chronic respiratory diseases) and four key risk factors (tobacco use, alcohol, unhealthy diets, and physical inactivity). It is not that those who preside over global health today have been ignorant of the mental health crisis befalling our world.
