Mental Health is an essential part of your overall health and wellbeing.[1] Good mental health means that you are able to recognize your own abilities, adapt to the normal stresses of life, work productively, and contribute to your community.[2] Several social, psychological, and biological factors determine the degree of emotional wellbeing you might experience at any given time.[2] If a person is engaging in a pattern of behaviour or thinking that is causing them significant distress or is having a negative impact on their life, they may wish to seek professional medical advice to get appropriate support in managing the problem.[3] The discipline of neuroscience is key to understanding how our brains work and how we can maintain good mental health, which is key to everything else in our lives. In addition, the research and development process conducted in neuroscience is concerned with providing innovative treatment options that have the potential to help people struggling with poor mental health.[4]

For over 60 years, Janssen has been a pioneer in the field of neuroscience. Focused on addressing areas of unmet need, it is our mission to reduce the burden, disability and devastation caused by serious neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases.

Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer’s is a form of dementia that destroys brain cells over a long period of time. It impacts memory, thinking, orientation, language, judgement, and the ability to carry out simple tasks.[6] It is not a normal part of ageing, but a progressive neurodegenerative disease.[6]

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

Being in a bad mood or feeling sad because something terrible happened is part of a normal, emotionally balanced human life. There are different types of depression and Major Depressive Disorder or MDD is one of them. Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is a long-lasting, biologically based mood disorder.[7]


Schizophrenia is a misunderstood and stigmatized illness. When someone is suffering from a psychotic episode as the result of their Schizophrenia, their normal thought processes are disrupted. This may give people the misperception that the person with Schizophrenia has multiple personalities, which is not the case. The schizophrenic mind is not split but shattered.[8]
