|Half the world to develop mental health disorder
A new study has found that more and more people are experiencing mental health problems. Research from the University of Queensland and Harvard Medical School found that half of us will have at least one mental health disorder by the time we are 75. Professor John McGrath, lead author of the study, said the most common issues were mood disorders, such as depression or anxiety. He added that "the risk of certain mental disorders differed by sex". The three most common mental health disorders among women were depression, phobias that make daily life more difficult and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Men suffered most from alcohol abuse, depression, and phobias.
