In honor of World Mental Health Day, we're excited to offer this new 3-question quiz. But here's the best part: When you test your knowledge, you'll unlock $1—doubled from 50 cents!— to bring more mental health care across 10 impoverished nations.

Ready to get started?

(1) Roughly 3/4 of all people living with mental illness come from poor countries. So what do you think: How many can find the vital care they need?

You're right. In the nations we serve, mental health care barely exists, and upwards of 90% of people in need go untreated—for schizophrenia, depression, and all manner of mental illness.

PIH fights to close this gap every day, bringing vital medication, therapy, and in-patient care to some of the world's poorest and farthest-flung regions.

It's even worse than you think. In the nations we serve, mental health care barely exists, and upwards of 90% of people in need go untreated—for schizophrenia, depression, and all manner of mental illness. All the while, there is barely one psychiatrist for every 200,000 people.

(2) Depression takes a tragic toll in the world's poorest places—and it's only getting worse. So take a guess: What year will depression become the leading cause of disability around the world?

You got it. Depression is on track to outpace heart disease, cancer, and HIV as the leading cause of disability by 2030, but only if nothing changes.

Every day, PIH doctors and staff do everything they can to identify depression in the communities we serve—and ensure patients get the high-level health care they need to recover.

(3) Access to high-quality mental health care means people can get better—and get back to work. So take a shot: Every dollar invested in mental health care infuses how much money into the local economy?

Exactly! Untreated mental illness takes a heavy toll on families—and entire economies. Without help, many people can't get an education, earn money, or provide for their kids.

With your support, we're treating mental illness across 10 destitute nations—and helping whole families lift themselves out of poverty.
