The campaign is calling upon the United Nations to include the following target within the Post-2015 Health Goal:
‘The provision of mental and physical health and social care services for people with mental disorders, in parity with resources for services addressing physical health.’
We further suggest the inclusion of the following 2 indicators:
1. 'To ensure that service coverage for people with severe mental disorders in each country will have increased to at least 20% by 2020 (including a community orientated package of interventions for people with psychosis; bipolar affective disorder; or moderate-severe depression).'
2. ‘To increase the amount invested in mental health to at least 5% of the total health budget by 2020, and to at least 10% by 2030 in each low and middle income country.’
