This book has been crafted to provide you with the best possible evidence generated in research to help you achieve your goal of excellence in practice.

It encourages you to become personally, professionally, and spiritually willing to muster the courage and hope necessary to forge proactive steps in our future and to make a commitment to work globally in a contemporary landscape and mindscape.
We have the opportunity to forge a new synthesis of professional wisdom in face of tough mind-body-spirit problems and needs. We need to face the new millennium's critical transitions with intelligence, stamina, wit, creativity, skill, and moral courage. Global mental health can become a shared emergent vision constructed in a way that is respectful of the rich diversity of the citizens of our contemporary world. We created this book to provide you with a map, a compass, and the inspiration to succeed in your current work. We hope that it encourages you to become a participant and leader in facing the broader challenges ahead of us.
