*Editors Note: MSM wishes to thank these three gentlemen for their encouraging responses. Yes, MSM is novel, hope it is wholesome too. And hope it generates enlightened debate among fellow psychiatrists and other social scientists as well. And the views get shared with others to help generate viewpoints, consensual, contradictory, resolutional or whatever.

Reader Responds

I really enjoyed going through the Mens Sana Monographs because of their topics of current interest, whether it is suicide-free society or the current one on the goal-Health for all. These are all contemporary issues which concern professionals, public and the government.

I only wish all the agencies concerned about health read these meaningful monographs and take up the issues.

All of us are aware that health, especially mental health, is at low priority. In this later monograph on Health For All, you have raised pertinent questions.* Hope you will have good response.

I congratulate Dr. Shakuntala A. Singh and yourself for your excellent work.

Wishing you all the success.

Dr. S.M. Channabasavanna ,

* Editors' Note :

Prof Channabasavanna’s concern that health (including mental health) no longer remain low priority, and health related issues become points for concerted action will surely find an echo in most right thinking people all over. The whole point is how much of this concern gets translated into concrete action, and concerned agencies devote time and effort to convert the frowns and creases on the faces of the right thinking into smiles and nods of approval. That is the challenge for a brighter and a healthier tomorrow.
