Mental Illness introduction

Mental disorders are proving to be one of the greatest threats to our global society. A report from the World Health Organization has made it clear that mental disorders will be the number one cause of a variety of disabilities and the second leading cause of death by the year 2020.

Mental disorders, in one form or another, are constantly present in every country. These disorders contribute to many problems and very often threaten the economic growth of a nation. Because mental disorders, unlike physical disorders, so not present overtly in the early stages, their diagnosis happens rather late in the cycle of the illness, compounding the problem. The most important way to counter the problem of mental disorders is to develop and teach strategies for maintaining good mental health. The purpose of this website is to educate you in the science behind good mental health and to help you develop your own strategies to secure it for both yourselves and society.
