Counseling & Mental Health FAQs

How does Mental Health affect our lives?

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that one in four people will suffer from a mental or neurological disorder at some point in their lives, but these disorders are not always correctly diagnosed and thus go untreated. In addition, stigma, discrimination, and exclusion add to the suffering of people with mental health problems. A little-understood aspect of mental disorders is that they are not merely disabling; they are also life-threatening.

  • Loneliness in old age is a higher health risk than life-time smoking

  • Depression can lead to lost work days and a decrease in productivity

  • Depression increases the risk of cancer and heart disease

  • Mental illness plays a role in 90 percent of suicides

  • Mental health problems increase one's chances of contracting HIV, pulmonary diseases, and diabetes

  • Raises one's risk of homelessness, poverty, and institutionalization, including imprisonment
