Mental illness is reported to be one of the most reported morbidity cause globally. As reported by the World Health organization (WHO, 2014), mental, neurological, and substance use disorders are estimated to be a public health concern and should be looked at with particular attention. For example, 14% of the global burden of disease, particularly non-communicable diseases (NCDs), are because of the mental, neurological and substance use disorders. As compared to developed countries, developing countries (with low income) are estimated to be the most vulnerable and affected (75% people suffering from these disorders are distributed in low-income countries).
