According to the World Health Organization, mental disease affects one European out of four. Among these mental conditions, depression alone is responsible for 13.7% of YLD (Years Lived with Disability). Epidemiological estimates indicate that, by the year 2020, it could become the no. 2 disabling disease in the world after cardiovascular disease and, by 2030, the most frequent chronic pathology (WHO 2011).
Over the last 100 years, scientific discoveries and their medical applications have made it possible to attain major results in the diagnosis and cure of mental disease.
