Summary

Far from being a "First World problem", mental illness is a global scourge that affects people of all incomes and backgrounds. By 2030, mental disorders will cost the global economy around $6 trillion a year - more than heart disease.

A Manifesto to Reduce Mental Illness

Mental Illness costs constitute 1% of global GDP, and the costs associated with the disability caused by mental illness are more than those related to cancer and diabetes combined.

20% of adult Americans suffer from Mental illness, and 10% suffer from severe mental illness. Also, mental illness is extremely treatable.

Yet few politicians and national organizations recognize these facts and fail to act to address this crisis.

We must find the political will to increase funding for mental health is developed and developing nations.
