Moving the Mental Health Equity Dialogue Forward: The Promise of a Social Entrepreneur Framework

Moving the Mental Health Equity Dialogue Forward: The Promise of a Social Entrepreneur Framework

In this commentary the authors highlight the difficulties developed countries have had in generating effective means of addressing inequities in mental health. Limitations in research, policy, and service responses are discussed and the social entrepreneurship framework is suggested as a means of better understanding how mental health disparities might be addressed. The example of the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture is provided to illustrate the points made.
