Research is an integral part of global health. A functioning global health system generates knowledge through discovery research; identification of intervention targets; and the development, testing, implementation and scale-up of effective interventions. This chapter will examine the role of research in global mental health, with a focus on low resource settings around the world. We explore the following issues: why research should be central to global mental health activities; research capacity building, a prerequisite for a research program (i.e., how we define it and the resources required to support robust, sustainable scientific activities); research priority-setting: how stakeholders determine research priorities and the implications of these activities; and uptake and demand for research: how research is implemented and translated to practice (i.e., what efforts ensure that research priorities can best meet local needs).
