Non-Communicable Diseases, Mental Health and Informal Care

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), also known as chronic diseases, tend to be of long duration and generally slow progression, and the result of a combination of genetic, physiological, environmental and behaviours factors. The 4 main types of non-communicable diseases are cardiovascular diseases (like heart attacks and strokes), cancers, chronic respiratory diseases (such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma) and diabetes. Mental health is inextricably linked to NCDs and their outcome but is currently not considered as a NCD.
