I get dizziness when I think about it.” // Today, is #WorldMentalHealthDay. From anxiety to depression, schizophrenia to trauma (such as that which Mabia lives with) - one in four people will experience a mental health issue in his or her lifetime. Of all people living with a mental illness or an intellectual disability, 85% are in low and middle-income countries. Mental and behavioral problems reduce lifespan by as much as 20 years. In some countries, 98% receive no treatment. Neglect by governments and stigma leads to the marginalization of both the issue and the people living with mental health conditions. // I started documenting mental health issues in 2011. I founded the not for profit organization - @WitnessChange - to contribute to a world where mental health is recognized as a global health priority and a society where people living with mental health issues are seen, heard and valued. // To see more of the work from this series, follow @onedayinmyworld.
