    Some facts:

    20% of adults globally report a mental illness every year.

    10% of the global disease burden is caused by mental, neurological, and substance use disorders.

    27 workdays are lost every year by a worker suffering from depression.

    2030 – the year by which depression will be our most burdensome illness (more so than cancer, diabetes, and chronic respiratory diseases combined).

    10-20 is the number of years that people with severe mental disorders die earlier than the general population.

    “In Africa, there are only 1.4 mental health workers per 100,000 people, compared with a global average of 9 per 100,000.”


    We’re on a mission to reduce the burden of mental health disorders through bridging gaps in promotion, prevention, and care.
