In most cases, those in need have conditions that are treatable. But the challenge in Haiti—and in the majority  of developing countries—is that access to mental health care is  extremely limited. In Haiti, there are just five psychiatrists and one  neurologist for a population of 10 million. 


Addressing mental illness in Haiti and around the world is critical: The  World Health Organization predicts that by 2030, depression will become  the number one cause of disability. This burden is greatest in poor  countries—where 85 percent of patients like Esther don’t receive the  treatment they need.
