Mental illness remains one of the biggest health, social and economic challenges of our time.
Mental illness and brain disorders (CNS):
- Affect the daily lives of millions of people, often with devastating impact on how a person feels about themselves and the world.
- Remain a highly stigmatised health problem in modern society.
- Result in a global economic burden larger than that of cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes combined.
- Prove difficult to treat e.g. no new Alzheimer's disease treatment since 2003.
Never has there been a better time to take a bold new approach to tackling the challenges of the brain.
