This year, the profits from the solidarity race will go to the La Marató de TV3 Foundation. The collection is for the defense of mental health.

The Covid-19 pandemic has left a troubling emotional landscape. In Spain, according to the results of ENSE 2017, one in ten people has been diagnosed with a mental health problem (10.8%). Women report a mental health problem more often than men, 14.1% compared to 7.2%. Mental disorders are health disorders that involve a dysfunction of thought, emotions, behavior and impact in all areas of life.

In recent years, the importance of caring for mental health has become apparent and normalized. Going to a professional for help is increasingly socially accepted. During adolescence is when most mental disorders are diagnosed. It is an important time in life as significant physical and mental changes occur. The treatment and prevention of these cases must be controlled and taken into account in order to achieve a positive evolution. In any case, the best option is to seek help from a professional.
