INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MENTAL HEALTH CARE “Mental Health: Global challenges of XXI century” Nowadays many problems of mental health сare (MHC) become global. According to the World Health Organization, mental and behavioral disorders are extremely common and affect up to 25% of all people in different periods of their lives. The WHO notes that in the future, given the aging population and worsening social problems, the number of cases will increase considerably. Simultaneously, each country in the world faces socio-psychological and economic hindrances to development of a more efficient MHC system. This situation calls for joint efforts that will allow us to find better solutions to these urgent problems.
