Mental illness more damaging to happiness than poverty in rich countries
From the Economist: http://www.economist.com/blogs/graph...daily-chart-12
This study found that people suffering from common emotional problems like stress, anxiety or depression were 10% more likely to be unhappy than people living in poverty.
They claim that it would cost 20 times less to treat these emotional problems than to bring poor people out of poverty.
Will politicians listen and invest more in mental care?
