The pandemic tested us all in many ways and it also led to increased diagnoses of depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation.
Depressive symptoms grew from a base of about 193 million people worldwide to 246 million, which is about a 28% increase. Anxiety disorders grew from about 298 million people affected to 374 million, which is about a 25% increase according to a Forbes Health article on mental health statistics.
The impact depression and anxiety has on the global economy can be measured in $1 trillion of lost productivity each year!
“Destigmatising mental health issues increases connection with others, helping communities support one another,” says Angeleena Francis, a licensed mental health counsellor and the Executive Director at AMFM Healthcare. Francis also noted that communities with more mental health resources help ease the strain on first responders and emergency services.
It was with this in mind that the idea to hold an event of this nature was born.
