Catalyst 300 – Mental Health

Approximately 15% of global population is affected by mental health issues including anxiety and depression, substance abuse, and suicide. Mental health issues are often stigmatized and result in social exclusion and disproportionate exposure to other risks. Mental health care heavily relies on expensive medications and therapy while innovative treatments are limited. In the United States, dissolution of mental health care systems parallels the rise in homelessness and incarceration rates. This challenge therefore addresses the causes and consequences of mental health issues while promoting greater well-being for all.
