In the Mental Health World Report prepared to evaluate the mental health of the world population, the data of 49 thousand people from 8 English-speaking countries USA, Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India and Singapore were examined.
The results of the Mental Health Million Project’s World Report on Mental Health, an initiative run by Sapien Labs in the USA, point to “social mental health risk”.
The study revealed that the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19) exacerbated the current challenges.

In the report, which pointed out that 44 percent of the young population aged 18 to 24 are at clinical risk, it was stated that those whose mental health deteriorated due to the epidemic were mostly young people and women.
The report emphasized that the rate of those at clinical level mental health risk increased from 14 percent in 2019 to 26 percent in 2020.
In the report, which stated that 57 percent of the participants had socio-economic or health problems, it was noted that good sleep, social interaction and exercise contributed greatly to mental health.
The report noted that community-based research on mental health should be taken into account when drafting social and economic policy, and more attention should be paid to how best to deal with mental health disorders.
World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated in a statement in August 2020 that the anxiety and fear caused by the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19) negatively affected the mental health of millions of people.
Stating that some of the health institutions that provide mental health services were closed for the treatment of Kovid-19 patients, Ghebreyesus said, “Mental health was already a neglected health problem worldwide. Nearly 1 billion people live with a mental disorder. 3 million people every year. one person commits suicide every 40 seconds. ” he had spoken.
