An Afghan man with mental health problems is chained in a mud room at the Mia Ali Baba shrine, in line with a traditional belief that spending 40 days chained in isolation at the shrine can cure the illness, in Jalalabad October 8, 2010. Afghanistan is struggling to fight the mental health problems that afflict an estimated two thirds of its population after decades of violence, the country's health ministry said on Sunday, World Mental Health Day.

Emalynona (L), 82, laughs after Kodipiri, 92, fell asleep when talking to her at a HelpAge day center in Colombo's Ratmalana district, September 16, 2010. HelpAge Sri Lanka is a charity set up to improve the quality of life of senior citizens, and the day centers provide meals, social events, and some medical assistance for low income seniors. The centers provide activities to promote mental health for many elderly that would normally be left at home alone. The latest World Giving Index results placed Sri Lanka eighth most generous in the world in providing charity donations.

Ten-year-old Pham Duc Duy is cradled in the arms of his mother, Nguyen Thi Thanh Van, 35, in their house in Hanoi June 16, 2007. Vietnamese doctors believe Duy, whose grandfather served in the Vietnam war, is a victim of exposure to dioxin passed down the generations. Several major U.S. chemical companies are directly accountable for supplying the U.S. military with dioxin, or "agent orange," during the Vietnam War and causing widespread dioxin poisoning, a lawyer for Vietnamese plaintiffs told a federal appeals court on June 18, 2007.
