Importance & Scope:

      Rising rates of depression and suicide are among the most obvious signs of the increase in mental illness resulting from the economic crisis in Spain. According to WHO around two million people in Spain with mental illness do not receive any mental health care. Untreated mental illness can mean reduced employment, family breakdown, homelessness and suicide. The burden extends beyond the individual to family and friends. Neuropsychiatric disorders are the second cause of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) in Europe and account for 19%, with only 4% after cardiovascular disorders. About 27% of the adult population had experienced at least one of a series of mental disorders which includes problems arising from substance use, psychosis, depression, anxiety and eating disorders. Mental illness affects people of all ages, with a significant impact on many young people.1 2

Every seven years a survey is done in Europe to measure the number of people who have different types of mental health problem. 3
