Mental health disorders are notoriously difficult to diagnose and treat for a variety of reasons, including genetic heterogeneity, comorbidities, and qualitative diagnostic criteria.

World Mental Health Day, organized by the World Federation for Mental Health, raises awareness and mobilizes efforts in support of mental health. This year, World Mental Health Day is October 10, and is focused on suicide prevention. Every 40 seconds, someone takes their own life1. Every year, more than 800,000 people die by suicide, which now ranks as the most common cause of death among people 15-29 years old.
