Due to factors such as ageing populations, increasing comorbidities and late or erroneous diagnoses, millions of people globally are impacted (with an upward tendency) by illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease and Depression. While prevention and early diagnosis are crucial to improving the wellbeing of patients, new medications and therapies need to be developed to support them with adequate palliative care.
This session will discuss how mental health can become a global development priority by setting new examples for treatments, improving current health systems, e.g., via political incentives, and increasing awareness within society.

Preparation of the event is supported by Biogen GmbH.
