Join the fight for the inclusion of mental health in the United Nations High-level Meeting on Non-Communicable Diseases

Nearly half a billion people are affected by mental disorders which account for nearly 15% of the disease burden in the world - more than heart disease, lung disease, cancer or diabetes – more than TB, HIV and malaria combined! Yet, the historical neglect and exclusion of mental health from local, regional, national and global agendas continues and the exclusion of the neuropsychiatric disorders from the United Nations High-level Meeting on Non-Communicable Diseases represents a major social and economic injustice to the hundreds of millions of citizens suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders who are robbed of the opportunity to reach their life’s potential and are condemned to lives of vulnerability.
