Lancet report: Mental health disorders on the rise in India

PM Theresa May appoints ‘world’s first’ minister for suicide prevention

"And we can all be a part of a new movement - including people who have faced mental illness themselves - to call on governments and industry to put mental health at the top of their agendas".

Dr Eno Kufre, a Psychiatrist with a Private Psychiatrist Centre in Gwagalada on Wednesday said compounded stress and apprehension if not recognised and managed could lead to mental illness.

The piece tackles the issues surrounding mental healthcare, or lack thereof, and asks that we all work to de-stigmatize illnesses that plague so many.

According to the authors, the time is now to change the perceptions surrounding mental health issues and to better the way we care for those dealing with them in the process.

Young children of staff can also get involved by drawing a picture to illustrate the theme "Happiness in my world", and a series of presentations will be on display at all main Qatar Airways offices to promote greater awareness of key mental health issues.

In fact, mental health care now receives less than 1 percent of global aid.

As a mental health nurse, it's just you. The whole month of October is also dedicated to mental health awareness.

This is why Health Minister, Dr. Duane Sands yesterday stressed the importance of raising the issue of mental health in conversations.


"Young people are constantly battling the effects of human rights violations, war and violence in our homes, schools and workplaces, competing cultures from all around us through television and the internet, where they experience cyber-crimes, cyber-bullying".

Also, the common man is over-stressed with family responsibilities and work pressure, and has less time to socialise and de-stress. If you have children, I urge you to take a minute to check in on them and talk to them about mental illness, depression, anxiety, bullying, happiness and all of the things we sometimes take for granted or ignore.

"Driven by violence, environmental changes and inequality, mental disorders are going unchecked in every country in the world".

In light of Life Esidimeni, the commission says more needs to be done to strengthen the monitoring and accountability of mental health.

The move, meant to tackle the tragedy of 4,500 people taking their own lives in England each year, comes on World Mental Health Day.

Why? Because most people, who suffer from major depressive disorder, would rather hide their emotions than be a burden to their loved ones.

"Pets are non-judgmental, are generally always happy to see and spend time with us, and make us feel needed, and so it comes as no surprise that they can have an impact on our wellbeing".

"The two of us have taken different paths in life".
