Calls for Global Positioning System to get mental health days to cope with stress

 BATTLE Leon Mc Kenzie has suffered from depression

The number of children in London and the south east referred for mental health treatment by their schools has risen by more than a fifth in the past three years, to 48,000.

Karen Plum, Head of Research and Development at workplace consultants Advanced Workplace Associates, said: "The more we stress and worry, the better we become at stressing and worrying".

Almost a third of referrals from schools to CAMHS, for Trusts across England who were able to provide the information, over the last three years were declined treatment as they did not meet the criteria for support.

Many organisations in Scotland, including the Mental Health Foundation, See Me, SAMH, Penumbra, Samaritans and The Alliance, play a huge part in helping to break down barriers associated with talking about mental health and together we are making progress, evidenced in part by the increase in demand for support.

The survey, commissioned by the charity to mark the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week, also found that nearly a third of people (32%) had experienced suicidal thoughts or feelings because of stress. This could be a result of a lack of funding and services to support children in those settings.

"We must make sure that Childline is adequately funded so it isn't left vulnerable and can be there for the children who have nowhere else to turn".


The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the National Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health, the American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and Mental Health America co-hosted the briefing and panel discussion, according to a statement from the lawmakers' offices. Despite our efforts - we are still unable to offer young people support as quickly as we would like to, and this is something we are working hard to remedy.

MHAW is a week of action to promote positive mental health, and Essex Police are raising awareness of the support the force has for the public as well as its officers, staff and volunteers.

"For some people stress can lead to mental health problems such as anxiety and depression, and in more severe cases self-harm or suicide".

There is an increased spotlight on mental health awareness but on average, calculated across both generations, only 14% of people are comfortable speaking to a manager about their stress levels.This is despite a quarter of millennials (25%) saying they compromise their health to do their job, compared with 18% of baby boomers.

Hannon added that one of the myths that often prevents parents from seeking treatment for their child is that they will be judged if their child has a mental health condition or as parents they did something wrong.

It's clear we have some way to go before the majority of workplaces achieve parity of esteem in the attention that good mental health receives compared with physical health, and the confidence and openness with which this aspect of health is treated.
