Mental Health Day: More people seek help, but stigma persists

Mental Health Day: More people seek help, but stigma persists

He said according to the World Health Organization half of all mental illness begins by the age of 14 but most cases go undetected and untreated. It is therefore surprising that so many businesses continue to ignore how mental health can impact their company - and how their company can affect mental health too. Regrettably, despite the widespread attention the event generates every year, there is still plenty of work to be done in addressing mental ill health.

With the recent release of 2 WHO/Europe reports, "Situation of child and adolescent health in Europe" and "Adolescent alcohol-related behaviours: trends and inequalities in the WHO European Region, 2002-2014", the health and well-being of young people is high on the regional agenda.

Dr Antonis Kousoulis, associate director at MHF, said: "Our survey provides shocking further evidence of the growing crisis in the mental health of children".

"We are aware that improvements to the system have taken place over the years but we feel we can not wait another two, four, six years for certain changes to be made".

"In a country where only few have access to health services, the awareness level about mental health issues is rare".

To raise awareness for World Mental Health Day, Victoria BID have collaborated with the charity Mind.

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

The minister said investigators had spoken to Marinova's family and friends and added: "There is no apparent link to her work". And even some of Marinova's fellow journalists were not convinced that she was killed because of her reporting.

Edinburgh Leisure, a charity dedicated to creating opportunities for local people to live active healthy lives, understands the positive impact physical activity can have and the difference it can make to people living with a mental health condition such as depression, stress or anxiety. "The youth are the future of our country and we need to act to prevent the devastating consequences of them losing their hope for the future", Dr Seape said. We need to teach our young that having a mental health issue is as normal as having a cold.

On World Mental Health Day, try implementing some of our simple, practical and low-priced steps that any organisation can take to support staff at every stage of the mental health spectrum - whether they're stressed or have a diagnosed mental health condition.

By law, employers should consider making reasonable adjustments if you are at a major disadvantage compared to other people who do not have a mental health problem. These outcomes do not correlate with the words of a Prime Minister who a year ago said she had "made it a priority of this government to tackle the injustice of mental illness". Mental health is our ability to enjoy life and cope with its challenges.

"And we also know that for each person affected, there are four to five other individuals around them that are also impacted in some way, so all up, there are something like 4 million Australians who are affected in some way by these more complex mental health concerns. and that is a pretty conservative estimate", Dr Blanchard says.

Janice Horsman, CEO of Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster Mind will discuss the charity, and good mental health can help you thrive at work.

The expert said that the day is observed every year with the general objective of raising awareness about the mental health issues the world over and mobilizing endeavours for the mental health.

When it comes to countries, India is the most depressed country in the world, according to the World Health Organisation, followed by China and the USA. This Partnership would bring together allies from across the diverse global mental health community and beyond.
