A new Lancet Commissionreport on mental health said that mental disorders are on the rise in every country in the world and will cost the global economy $16 trillion by The economic cost is primarily due to early onset of mental illness and lost productivity, with an estimated 12 billion working days lost due to mental illness every year.
