Recent studies indicate that, poverty level is a great determiner of these problems. For example, in the United States (U.S) alone, 25% of the population experiences either of these disorders at a point in a year (Patel, 2014). These records are derived as a result of medical care given to these individuals. The case is worse in developing nations where even mental health provision is unattainable. The less privileged class, therefore faces these problems more as opposed to the social privileged class.
Vikram Patel, a guru in mental health attributes depression as the main cause of these problems. Consequently, he pointed poverty as a major course of the illness. Poverty contributes to a lack of health services especially in developing nations where health services are costly. The problem’s scope is derived from the fact that interpersonal relationships are never developed in current medical models. He, therefore, suggests SUNDAR as a way of encountering and bridging these gaps of mental health in both developed and developing economies (Patel, 2014). SUNDAR is an acronym representing adequate measures to counter mental illness. It means message simplification as well as opening the treatment or else unpacks treatment measures. It also proposes for diversion of the treatment towards the citizens’ locality. Affordable human resource and reference to specialists in order to educate and track the patients is essential. For example, SUNDAR can serve the American society in fighting mental illness. With an already established human resource workforce and systems, the only requirement is professional to curb mental illness. SUNDAR is therefore, an effective means of achieving the fight against mental illness in developed economies like the U.S. t is due to the fact that human resource required is in place and capital the government provides partly in health costs (Patel, 2014). A social health worker in such a setting requires only monitoring
