Impact of Mental Health

Each of us is not alone in our struggles to achieve good mental health. In fact, mental illness is a global challenge. We often underestimate the impact mental health has on our own well-being.  And its impact on the world is often overlooked.

The statistics are staggering ... 1 in 5 suffer from a mental illness, that's 20% of our population but yet only 4% of the total healthcare budget is spent on our mental health.
