The Connection Between Mental Health and Substance Abuse

The National Bureau of Economic Research found that there is a “definite connection between mental illness and the use of addictive substances.” Their study found those with mental disorders are responsible for the consumption of:

  • 38% of alcohol
  • 44% of cocaine
  • 40% of cigarettes

The World Health Organization claims depression is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. Substance abuse can worsen depression, increasing the risk of addiction, overdose and suicide.
