Unscramble the Blue Letters

But beyond the staggering nmbeurs, what's truly important from a global health point of view, what's truly worrying from a glaobl health point of view, is that the vast majority of these affected individuals do not receive the care that we know can transform their lives, and remember, we do have robust eecdinve that a range of inonitvntrees, medicines, psychological interventions, and social interventions, can make a vast difference. And yet, even in the best-resourced countries, for example here in Europe, roughly 50 percent of affeetcd people don't reicvee these interventions. In the sorts of countries I work in, that so-called treatment gap arecaohpps an astonishing 90 percent. It isn't surprising, then, that if you should speak to anyone affected by a mental illness, the chances are that you will hear stories of hidden suffering, shame and discrimination in nearly every sector of their lives. But perhaps most heartbreaking of all are the stories of the abuse of even the most basic human rithgs, such as the young woman sowhn in this igame here that are played out every day, sadly, even in the very institutions that were built to care for people with mental illnesses, the mental hospitals.

Original Text

But beyond the staggering numbers, what's truly important from a global health point of view, what's truly worrying from a global health point of view, is that the vast majority of these affected individuals do not receive the care that we know can transform their lives, and remember, we do have robust evidence that a range of interventions, medicines, psychological interventions, and social interventions, can make a vast difference. And yet, even in the best-resourced countries, for example here in Europe, roughly 50 percent of affected people don't receive these interventions. In the sorts of countries I work in, that so-called treatment gap approaches an astonishing 90 percent. It isn't surprising, then, that if you should speak to anyone affected by a mental illness, the chances are that you will hear stories of hidden suffering, shame and discrimination in nearly every sector of their lives. But perhaps most heartbreaking of all are the stories of the abuse of even the most basic human rights, such as the young woman shown in this image here that are played out every day, sadly, even in the very institutions that were built to care for people with mental illnesses, the mental hospitals.
