Mental Health Disorders on the Rise

Mental Health disorders are on the rise, and healthcare officials worry about the burden of these illnesses across the globe.

Recent studies show that mental disorders and illegal drug abuse cases have risen steadily in the last 20 years.

The policies to manage and alleviate the suffering of people with these disorders are not keeping pace with the growing needs of people with these issues.

Mental health and substance abuse disorders increased almost 38 percent between 1990 and 2010, and these disorders were globally the leading cause of non-fatal disease.

Ian Hickie, Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Sydney’s Brain and Mind Research Institute, said that mental health and substance abuse are extremely large factors of death and disability worldwide.
