More people are experiencing mental health problems. Half of us will have at least one problem by the age of 75. The lead author of a study said the most common problems were mood disorders like depression. The risk of disorders differs between men and women. The most common mental health disorders for women were depression and phobias that make daily life more difficult. Men suffered most from alcohol abuse and depression.

The researchers looked at 32 mental health surveys from 156,000 people in 29 countries. The researchers found out when mental health problems first start. They also looked at the risk of getting different mental disorders. An important finding was that mental disorders appear a lot in children. Young people need more help with their lives. They need services that treat their mental health problems.
