The chapter collates information from different international projects and outlines the current state of global mental health resources from the perspective of governance, finance, mental health services including those for special populations, and information systems. Training of mental health personnel and distribution of such personnel globally are discussed. However, a detailed description of human resources is provided in another chapter. Outline of some key initiatives in global mental health led by international and non-governmental organizations are provided. Though the chapter has a bias towards resources in low and middle income countries, resources in high income countries are also suitably highlighted. The implications of recent initiatives in global mental health on development of mental health resources around the world, and key lacunae that need to be filled-up, in future, are also discussed.
