Care for Mental Health Conditions in Jamaica: The Case for Investment. Evaluating the Return on Investment of Scaling Up Treatment for Depression, Anxiety, and Psychosis
Mental health conditions impose a high burden not only on individuals, families, and society, but also on economies. In Jamaica, mental health conditions are highly prevalent and major contributors to morbidity, disability, and premature mortality. This state-of-the art study estimates the return on investment (ROI) from scaling up treatment for anxiety, depression, and psychosis. The results show that Jamaica can significantly reduce the burden of mental health conditions by investing in recommended interventions.

Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases and Care for Mental Health Conditions in Jamaica: The investment case
Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and mental health (MH) conditions are major drivers of morbidity and mortality in Jamaica. Beyond the toll on health, they also impose a significant burden on the national economy since treatment for NCDs leads to high expenditures and individuals with NCDs or MH conditions are more likely to exit the labor force, miss days of work, and/or work at a reduced capacity. This case study from Jamaica presents an example from which other countries can learn and adapt to their own health situation.
