Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the stressors of life, work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.
One in every four people suffers from a mental health issue, globally. More than 450 million people suffer from mental health disorders around the world. Around 20% of the world's children and adolescents are estimated to have mental health disorders or problems Most low and middle-income countries have only one child psychiatrist for every 4 million people, leading to a large gap between supply and need for services in those areas.
The SNHSS was launched under the umbrella of the WMH Survey Consortium, with the vision to bridge the gap between mental health service demand and supply.
