We are committed to raising awareness and seeking solutions regarding the crisis in mental health and substance use disorders.
Indeed, the numbers are staggering:
- 1 in 4 people at some point in their lives will be affected by mental or neurological disorders.
- About 450 million people are now struggling with their mental health and/or addictions.
- Mental health disorders are among the world’s leading causes of disability and ill-health.
- The treatment gap between those who need care and those who actually receive it is estimated at 76–85% for low- and middle-income countries and 35–50% for high-income countries.
