Progress in Mind

More than 700 million people are affected by brain disease worldwide – this is equal to 13% of the global disease burden[1].

Progress in Mind is Lundbeck’s dedication to addressing the global burden of brain disease.

Our foundation for progress
Brain disease is a global health problem. Through improved medical treatments and continuous focus on the unmet needs of patients, we want to address the issue and call for greater awareness of the massive economic and societal burden brain disease represents.

With our unique position as a specialist in brain disease, we want to raise disease awareness and challenge the international agenda for broader acceptance of patients and increased opportunities for better treatment.

Our involvement
Global progress for people living with brain disease requires a multifaceted approach. First and foremost, we continue to develop new and improved medical treatments and continue to focus on the patient, ensuring that he or she regains possibilities. But we also work to embrace our mission from two other essential dimensions: We encourage increased support to affected families and we engage in communities to create broader social acceptance of patients.

To raise awareness and prevent stigmatization, we use our voice as specialists in brain disease and share our knowledge about the many unmet needs in the treatment of brain disease. We reach into both professional and patient communities to offer disease education and support programmes to health care professionals, patients and their families. Our global presence enables us to let successful, local initiatives travel the world and make a difference to patients everywhere.
