The Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD) uses a scientific framework to quantify health loss due to diseases, injuries, and risk factors by location, age, sex, and year. This work has been central in revealing the global health impacts of mental and substance use disorders. In this chapter, the global burden of mental and substance use disorders, based on findings from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 (GBD 2015), is presented. The methods used to estimate the burden of mental and substance use disorders and how that has evolved over time; the key analytical considerations for the accurate interpretation of burden findings; the accessibility of GBD data; and the applicability of GBD data in other areas of public health are summarized.
