Research Forum on Anxiety and Depression

The WISH Anxiety and Depression forum and forum report provide an overview of the global challenge of anxiety and depression and the significant treatment gap. It emphasizes the important role of prevention and promotion initiatives while also considering the evidence and best practices for integrated models of care.

 The WISH report explores how integrated care models can be implemented, evaluated and improved across differing health systems and resources settings. The report concludes by providing recommendations for increasing coverage, improving quality of care and ensuring the implementation and scale up of services in a sustainable way.
