Research finds 164 million people have problems such as depression and anxiety with men more likely to become alcohol-dependent.
More than a third of the population of Europe suffer from some sort of a mental disorder each year, according to a study which calls attention to the scale of the problem and the paucity of treatment.
The research from the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology has found that more than 164 million people in the EU – more than 38% of the population – have a mental disorder in any year.
