Welcome to ACIDD

ACIDD recognizes the urgent need to address, and educate the public about the seriousness of mental illness. In the context of COVID-19 pandemic, it is likely that there will be substantial increase in mental health issues in the world. People will be more anxious and depressed, substance use will increase, social issues such as domestic violence, crime and child abuse will flourish. It is necessary to plan for the inevitability of loneliness of people due to social distancing. The difficult moment in time  offers the opportunity to understand as to how to provide prevention-focused psychological first aid and mental health care. The pandemic is a unique threat.

World Mental Health Day raises awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizes efforts in support of mental health. This year it will take place on October 10th. No mental health disorder is more pressing today than Depression. Mental illness is an epidemic that strikes one out of every four people globally. Read all about it on ACIDD Notes.
