Abstract [en]

Mental health issues account for an estimated total of 13% of the globalburden of disease while over 79% of people in need of services are left untreated. For this reason, integration of mental health into primary health care has been a recommendation of WHO for over 30 years. The aim of the study is to understand how mental health system policy and regulations affect financing and delivery of services. The method used is a cross sectional descriptive multiple case study using data from two OECD countries in Latin America: Mexico and Chile. After a comparison of both countries, the results indicate that differences in resource allocation does make a difference in early detection and treatment of mental health disorders.
