Mental and substance use disorders were the leading cause of non-fatal illness worldwide in 2010, according to a new analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study, published in The Lancet today.
A team of researchers from Australia and the US, led by Professor Harvey Whiteford from The University of Queensland’s School of Population Health, reported that the leading contributors were depressive disorders (accounting for 40.5% of mental and substance use disorder burden) followed by anxiety disorders (14.6%), illicit drug use disorders (10.9%) and alcohol use disorders (9.6%).
Professor Whiteford said the burden from mental and substance use disorders is rising, especially in developing countries.
“If the impact of mental and substance use disorders is to be reduced, a global effort is required to implement cost-effective prevention and intervention strategies and to develop innovative ways to deliver these to communities,” Professor Whiteford said.
“Treatment rates for people with mental and substance use disorders are low, and even in developed countries, treatment is typically provided many years after the disorder begins.
“In all countries, stigma about mental and substance use disorders constrain the use of available resources, as do inefficiencies in the distribution of funding and interventions.
“We need commitment from policy-makers, governments and other stakeholders to prioritise mental and substance use disorders.”
We are in need of professionally trained coaches now:
