Brain health is common wealth. If there is such thing as utopia, it will definitely involve mentally sound individuals. Healthy brains produce sound body and mind - which, in turn, enrich lives.
According to the World Health Organization, the stigma against mental illness is a major cause of discrimination and exclusion in our society. Where there is discrimination and exclusion, there is poverty not only on social levels but also in the economic or livelihood aspect.
"...[D]eeply entrenched stigma and discrimination against people with mental health conditions and psychosocial disabilities, [lead] to a violation of their human rights; low levels of mental health literacy in the general population; insufficient investment in and access to quality services for people over the whole life course, resulting in unmet need and financial hardship; fragmented or uncoordinated service delivery; inadequate governance and information systems; and a continuing reliance on psychiatric hospitals or social care institutions as a primary locus of mental healthcare delivery."
A significant number of veterans suffer from various mental problems. Research suggests that 14-16% of U.S. service members deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq have PTSD or depression. It was even recorded in 2018 that over 1.7 million veterans received mental health treatment in a VA specialty program. The stigma surrounding mental health often makes it difficult for our veterans and their family members to acquire gainful employment. This is how important mental health accommodation is in a work setting, especially for veterans and military family members who are indirectly affected by the mental problems of their loved ones.
At Lundbeck, LLC, mental health awareness is not just a part of its accommodation. The eradication of stigma that surrounds mental disabilities is their ultimate goal. One part, even though broken or imperfect, make up the whole. As a global pharmaceutical company that specializes in brain diseases, it is Lundbeck's mission to normalize discussions about brain health and its associated disorders. This advocacy has put Lundbeck at the forefront of neuroscience research and development for over 7 decades now.
