United Nations chief calls for more attention to mental health

PM Theresa May appoints ‘world’s first’ minister for suicide prevention The high economic toll of mental illness

Sam was sports-mad but his mental health spiralled after he fractured his back at fifteen, he was told a year later that he could never play sports again.

"We are pleased to be promoting new measures today, including the launch of our Mental Health Strategy, as we continue to build structures that will help promote a positive environment for athletes, coaches and support staff".

Right now, more and more young people are struggling to cope with their mental health.

The CCG is highlighting its perinatal mental health pathway, which brings together the support available during pregnancy and for the first 12 months after childbirth.

"The Government needs to take this hidden condition far more seriously".

The NAO said even if current initiatives are delivered as planned, there would still be "significant unmet need" for mental health care.

Medical experts say we've made strides in terms of reducing the stigma around mental illness, but they add there's a long way to go, making World Mental Health Day that much more important.

This is why today, on World Mental Health Day, I believe that it's the ideal time to promote mental health awareness in the workplace, and encourage colleagues to look out for each other. "And individuals and families affected by mental illness are still often subjected to stigma and discrimination, so they don't seek treatment".

Kyrgios in trouble with tennis officials again
The day featured most of the opening round singles matches, providing some fine exhibition of tennis throughout the day's play. Kyrgios was infuriated by the French chair umpire's comment, ultimately threatening him with action.

Caroline Bowes, Dechert's director of human resources for EMEA, said: 'All of our programmes - whether aimed at physical, financial or mental wellbeing - are created to engage, educate and provide the best possible support to our people'. Yet young people are facing unprecedented pressures in life, leading to anxiety, depression and eating disorders. Adewale, therefore, called on the National Assembly to pass the Mental Health Bill without delay in the interest of Nigerians before the situation gets out of hand.

As a mental health nurse, the challenges are high but the rewards are even higher.

World Mental Health Day is observed on October 10 with the "objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health".

Mental health is defined as a person's emotional, psychological and social well-being.

"The course is proving exceptionally popular to date which we hope is indicative of the recognition that this very important and very prevalent issue is now receiving".

"We need to open up functional counselling centres in our institutions of learning and within the society generally". And to take a moment and do your part and help change the way we talk about this issue.

"Because some of the topics that the theme covers; suicide, bullying, trauma and gender identity, we chose to focus on high school students, because these are issues that are affecting our youth and they are being downplayed in a lot of instances because youth are not given a voice to express themselves", she said.

Half of all mental illness begins by the age of 14, and the prime minister has made several other announcements around children and young people's mental health today on World Mental Health Day.
