Abstract

In his public lecture Professor Prince will describe the history of global mental health in the global health context and the rapid developments that have taken place in the past ten years. The global burden of disease attributable to mental disorder is substantial; however, is probably underestimated due to the burden that is mediated through links with other conditions, for example maternal health and HIV/AIDS. Therefore there is a need for a programme underscored by the maxim "No health without mental health".

Professor Prince will describe the positive impact of integrating interventions for mental health with the treatment of physical disorders, and the implications of this approach for health policy and delivery of health services.  

Drinks and nibbles will be available from 5.30pm. The lecture will commence at 6pm with a question and answer session at the end.

Since 1998 he has coordinated the 10/66 Dementia Research Group, a network of researchers, mainly from low and middle-income countries (LMIC) working together to promote better research into dementia in those regions. The group has published 140 papers covering dementia prevalence, incidence, aetiology and impact and contributed to knowledge of public health aspects of ageing and chronic disease in LMIC.

He lead the development of the widely reported ADI World Alzheimer Reports for 2009 (prevalence and numbers), 2010 (societal cost) and 2011 (early intervention), 2013 (long term care), 2014 (modifiable risk factors), 2015 (update on prevalence, incidence and cost) and was a leading contributor to the WHO World Dementia Report 2012.
