Mental illnesses are more common than cancer, diabetes, or heart disease. Evidence from WHO suggests that nearly half of the world’s population are affected by mental illness with an impact on their self-esteem, relationships and ability to function in everyday life. An individual’s emotional health can impact their physical health. Poor mental health can lead to problems such as substance abuse.
