This chapter sets out the case for making use of economic modelling techniques to help inform decisions on effective and cost-effective actions for global mental health. Models potentially can be used to augment information obtained from controlled trials, for instance to look at the potential cost-effectiveness of actions over time periods beyond trial duration, to help adapt evidence obtained in one context to likely scenarios in other settings where infrastructure, costs, and current treatment options may be very different, or to help identify priority areas for research. The strengths and limitations of different modelling approaches are discussed and examples of how they have been used to inform policy making highlighted. The chapter ends by setting out key steps that should be taken when both planning and presenting the findings from a modelling study.
