Mental Illness continues to develop unabated in India. A recent study by the Lancet Magazine which will be published on Thursday shows that the numbers are not encouraging for India. India and China together account for more than 38 % of the mental illness globally. Also the citizens there are among the most depressed in the world. Globally the numbers are no better. Nearly half of American adults develop a mental illness in their lifetime; depression affects 350 million people worldwide.
