Excerpt
Latest WHO estimates of the global burden of disease for 15 to 44 year-olds indicate that mental and behavioural disorders represent five of the top ten leading disease burdens. These disorders, which include depression, alcohol use disorders, self-inflicted injuries, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, are as significant in developing countries as they are in industrialized countries. The economic and social impact of this burden on society is tremendous. Health and social service costs and loss of production due to high unemployment rates among people with mental disorders and their families, are some of the more obvious and measurable costs. Less apparent are the financial costs, diminished quality of life and emotional strain experienced by sufferers and their families. We know today that most mental disorders can be managed, treated, and in many cases prevented, and that effective intervention strategies exist. Yet there remains a large gap between the availability of this knowledge and its application in reality. Countries are ill-equipped to address this burden, as mental health resources are scarce and available mental health resources are misused.
