Mental Health: Just 18 per cent of Americans are ever treated
About the author: 

Just 18 per cent of Americans with a mental problem are ever treated, a new study has discovered

Just 18 per cent of Americans with a mental problem are ever treated, a new study has discovered. And less than half of those with even a severe mental condition - such as schizophrenia - ever get to see a doctor.

This pattern is repeated throughout the European countries, with France and Germany providing the most care for the mentally-ill patient.

The neglect of mental problems is even worse in countries such as Nigeria and China, where less than 1 per cent of patients with severe mental illness are ever treated.
