This chapter provides a review of how various nations successfully approach the issue of ensuring positive mental health for their citizens. Wherever appropriate, the authors glean approaches and lessons that may be useful in improving the mental health system in the United States. In spite of the abundance of its intellectual and financial resources, the United States still has significant deficits in the way it deals with mental health issues and could benefit from the progressive approaches used by other nations. These include community-based care, integration of mental and physical health care, and normalization of mental health care. Ironically, some of these lessons come from countries with far fewer resources.
