This unique book presents original research from the largest cross-national survey of the epidemiology of mental disorders ever conducted. It provides the latest findings from the WHO World Mental Health Surveys based on interviews of nearly 150,000 individuals in twenty-six countries on six continents. The book is ordered by specific disorder, with individual chapters dedicated to presenting detailed findings on the prevalence, onset timing, sociodemographic profile, comorbidity, associated impairment and treatment for eighteen mental disorders. There is also discussion of important cross-national consistencies in the epidemiology of mental disorders and highlighting of intriguing patterns of cross-national variation. This is one of the most comprehensive summaries of the epidemiology of mental disorders ever published, making this an invaluable resource for researchers, clinicians, students and policy-makers in the fields of mental and public health.

Scott trained as a clinical psychologist in New Zealand and worked in adult mental health services for several years before being awarded a Rutherford Scholarship to undertake a doctorate at the University of Cambridge. Post-doctoral employment in New Zealand's national health surveys programme shaped her interest in epidemiology. Her research focuses on the intertwining of mental and physical health (she co-edited the World Mental Health volume on this topic) as well as the ways in which mental disorders vary across individuals and cultures. Peter de Jonge was trained as a clinical psychologist and psychometrician and received his Ph.D. in Psychiatry in 1999. He was appointed Professor of Psychiatric Epidemiology at the University Medical Center Groningen in 2008 and Professor and Head of Developmental Psychology at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, The Netherlands in 2016. He has (co-)authored over 280 papers and supervised more than 30 Ph.D. theses. His areas of interest include depression and anxiety, psychopathology in lifespan perspective and psychiatric co-morbidity. He is founder of the project 'HowNutsAreTheDutch?' and he has received several research grants and prizes, including the prestigious VICI award on 'Deconstructing Depression'. Dan J. Stein is Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Mental Health at the University of Cape Town, and Director of the South African Medical Research Council's Unit on Risk and Resilience in Mental Disorders. His work ranges from basic neuroscience, through clinical research, and on to epidemiological studies. He is enthusiastic about clinical practice and scientific research that integrates concepts and data across these different levels, including in the context of low and middle-income countries. He is a recipient of the Collegium Internationale Neuropsychopharmacologicum's Max Hamilton Award for his contributions to psychopharmacology, and of its Ethics in Psychopharmacology Award. Ronald C. Kessler, Ph.D., is the McNeil Family Professor of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School. Dr Kessler's research deals with the social determinants of mental health and illness as studied from an epidemiological perspective. He is the author of over 700 publications and the recipient of many awards, including the Senior Scientist and MERIT awards from the National Institute of Mental Health.
