Dear Bloggers and Readers,
I’m very excited today to share with you a project I’ve been working on, with a prestigious Ivy League university in the US which seeks innovative solutions to global challenges. One such challenge is the issue of Mental Health and the lack of awareness and stigma surrounding mental health conditions. Statistically, it is estimated that 1 in 4 people will suffer from a mental health condition at some point in their lives. Globally, there are over 300 million people affected by various mental health conditions, with depression alone being the 3rd leading cause of disease burden worldwide. In spite of these statistics, there is very little awareness of mental health and inadequate services to cater for this ever growing problem.
We are conducting research into the general public’s awareness of mental health and accessibility to treatment and would appreciate if you could spend a few minutes completing the survey below. This is an opportunity to lend your voice to help drive solutions that will not only tackle this complex issue but potentially save lives.
All responses are anonymous and it will take no more than 5 minutes to complete.
Please also leave any additional comments or views you have on this topic. I look forward to reading the comments.
Thank you for your contribution.
