Welcome to ACIDD

ACIDD recognizes the urgent need to address, and educate the public about the seriousness of mental illness. Another year has passed. We are in 2020. The world just celebrated the World mental health Day in September 2019! World Mental Health Day raises awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizes efforts in support of mental health. One of the pressing mental disorders today globally is Depression.

How concerned are we about reports that mental illness has become an epidemic striking one out of every four people in the world today? Mental illness threatens to engulf us all. Twenty million schoolchildren worldwide have now been diagnosed with mental disorders. Psychiatric drug use and abuse is surging world wide. Driven by DSM derived mental illness statistics, the international mental health budget has skyrocketed in the last ten years. In the US, mental health budget has soared from $33 billion to $90 billion today.
