Abstract

As UK trainee psychiatrists sharing an interest in global mental health, we welcome the Lancet Commission on global mental health and sustainable development with enthusiasm. We concur that task sharing, as a central factor to scaling up global mental health care, requires engagement from multidisciplinary mental health specialists. We also agree that in addition to optimising clinical care at a distance, digital technologies can enhance the training and supervision of non-specialist health workers. However, that potential exists for both task sharing and digital technologies to be taken much further.
