Lady Gaga co-writes powerful essay for World Mental Health Day

Well, most of us don't even know that they are going through any sort of mental illness, simply because we or people around us are not aware of the signs and symptoms.

The new strategy's aim is to help produce "a positive mental health environment" for British Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

Debbie Jevans, Interim Chair of the EFL said: "Every day throughout the year the EFL, through its 72 Clubs and their support staff ensure players improve and maintain their physical health".

Lady Gaga penned down a powerful letter about mental health and the stigma that surrounds it on the eve of "World Mental Health Day". "In the United Kingdom and Australia, peer-to-peer education programs encourage young people to support one another".

Lady Gaga, who co-founded the Born This Way youth advocacy group, and Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general at the World Health Organization, co-authored the piece and shared some shocking statistics to bring attention to the importance of mental health.

Stars of various EFL clubs turned heads in London as part of a live exhibit highlighting the role football can play in tackling mental health problems.


A new survey of adults in the Midlands conducted for PHE also shows almost three quarters (71%) of people in the Midlands report experiencing one or more of low mood, anxiety, stress and trouble sleeping, frequently or occasionally.

Meanwhile, Health Secretary Matt Hancock is hosting the first ever Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London, attended by ministers and representatives from over 50 countries as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

"There is a strong belief that mental illness is something caused by spirits or demon possession", he adds. But together we can change that.

The new campaign highlights that while we can all feel stressed, anxious, low or have trouble sleeping, there are simple actions we can take to manage these issues and prevent them from becoming more serious.

You can get involved by reading the WFMH report about all the issues young people are facing today, donating to mental health charities such as YoungMinds, and sharing stories on social media with the #WorldMentalHealthDay tag. The focus on mental health should be no different and every year 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem. "Yet despite the universality of the issue, we struggle to talk about it openly or to offer adequate care or resources".
