Poor access to mental health care is widely reported, although it differs according to sociopolitical and economic contexts. In emerging economies, including Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS), there has been increased public investment in recent years, but rapid economic growth in these countries has now slowed. Precarious global transitions affect both the burden of mental health problems and demand for services. Innovations prompted by these transitions, in both high-income and low-income countries, could help meet population needs during times of economic shock, whether scarcity or affluence.
