Economic Evaluation of Mental Health Interventions

About this Research Topic

Mental health disorders, including substance use disorders, affected more than 1 billion people globally and were responsible for 7% of the global burden of disease as measured in Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs) and 19% of all years lived with disability. The productivity loss due to anxiety and depression - two of the most common mental disorders - costs the global economy US$ 1 trillion each year. Overall, in 2010, poor mental health was estimated to cost the global economy approximately $2·5 trillion because of poor health and lost productivity, a cost projected to rise to $6 trillion by 2030. The COVID-19 pandemic is exerting enormous tolls on the mental health of people of all ages and around the world, leading to a crisis that could have more profound and long-term implications than its physical tolls. Sound economic evaluations of effective mental health prevention, treatment, and care delivery strategies are urgently needed to inform private and public policies aimed at improving access to and outcomes of mental health care.

The aim of the Research Topic is to include studies representing the forefront of economic evaluations in mental health (including substance use disorders), with the goal of informing the public and private resource allocation decisions related to population mental health. Subjects of interest include:

• Cost, cost-effectiveness, or cost-benefit of mental health (including substance use) interventions*

• Cost, cost-effectiveness, or cost-benefit of implementation strategies of evidence-based mental health (including substance use) interventions*

*: For this call, interventions are defined as therapeutics, care delivery models, or strategies to prevent, identify, diagnose, or treat mental health and substance use disorders, including but not limited to educational programs, pharmacotherapies, psychotherapies, service/care programs (e.g. multidisciplinary team meeting, early intervention for psychosis (EIP), and flexible assertive community treatment (FACT) model), and policy changes.

We will consider the following types of articles: Original Research, Systematic Review, Methods in Economic Evaluations in Mental Health, Policy and Practice Reviews, and Perspectives/Opinions.


Keywords: Mental Health, Substance Use, Economic Evaluation, Cost-Effectiveness Analysis, Cost-Benefit Analysis, Implementation Science


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
