Why creating 3 billion smiles?
According to a conservative estimation of the World Health Organization (WHO) 350 million people (that is 5% of the population) suffer from depression alone. But what is the number of people suffering, if one adds other mental illnesses such as anxiety, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress (PTSD), phobias, addiction, obsessions & compulsions (OCD), bi-polar, schizophrenia or dissociative identities (multi-personalities), hearing voices, having uncontrolled anger, considering self-harm & suicide, eating disorders such as anorexia & bulimia, or the suffering from effects of abuse, war and other adversities in life?
According to SANE Australia 45% of the population (almost every second person) will experience a mental disorder in their lives. In other words, if this doesn’t describe you, who is reading those lines in this moment, then it is the person, who you will look at next, your partner, your child, your parent, your friend or colleague …!
If we expand this figure globally, then more than 3 billion people will suffer at least once in their lives from a mental illness. These are more than 3 billion people that might be sad, unhappy, stressed, tired, lost, scared and desperate. Think about the consequences: That are 3 billion people that are not able to live a normal life all the time, 3 billion people that not only cannot contribute 100% to their families and communities but in fact require their understanding and support.
We, the global community (you and I), need to do something, we need to heal all those people (each and every-one) and get their smiles back, right? Well, then let’s team-up in –
