Mental disorders are affecting nearly 12 percent of the world's population, but mental health generally ranks low on the public health agenda, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday.

Some 450 million people all over the world experience a mental illness that could benefit from diagnosis and treatment, WHO said in a statement. Problems associated with mental illness and disorders will continue to rise unless more is done to tackle the issue and to reduce the burden of mental disorders.
