Mental health facts

One in four adults experiences at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any given year. People in all walks of life can be affected and at any point in their lives, including new mothers, children, teenagers, adults and older people. Mental health problems constitute the largest single source of world economic burden, with an estimated global cost of €1.8 trillion (or US $2.5 trillion) – greater than cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, cancer, or diabetes individually.
