State Mental Health Authority constituted to provide mental health services: Brahm Mohindra

Distress levels on the rise among young Australians

Almost half of young Irish people have said that their mental health has deteriorated in recent years.

It's an annual occasion created by the World Federation for Mental Health, designed to get us all talking about the state of our mental health.

Yes there are people who have severe mental illnesses, I for one suffer with Borderline Personality Disorder and Generalised Anxiety.

We treat 36, 000 cases yearly, says Ogun Psychiatric Hospital Experts have raised fresh alarm over rise in mental health disorders in every country on the planet, which they said are expected to cost the global economy £12 trillion yearly by 2030.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death globally for young peope aged between 15 and 19, according to the report, which also suggested there is little difference reported in mental health services and support between countries of low and middle average incomes and those of high incomes.

WFMH wants to encourage a plan of early interventions, prevention of mental illness and triggers such as bullying, and the implementing of resilience support and programs to educate young people about mental wellbeing. Young people who often struggle most with mental health issues, are the primary focus for the 2018 WMHD with the theme: "Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World", the report stated.


Peng had worked as a Chinese teacher for more than 10 years before devoting herself to mental health advocate and educator, providing information to reduce prejudice against mental health and reduce stigma among caregivers. The global meet on mental health is jointly organized by the U.K. Government, the World Health Organization and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

"Many leading employers have found that making a strategic commitment to the mental wellbeing of their workforce not only benefits their staff but also their bottom-line, improving productivity and staff retention".

"I feel Chinese people now are more open to talking about mental illnesses, which is progress", said Peng. And we need to build on efforts such as our own current Mental Health Awareness Week and the "Like Minds, Like Mine" campaign that promote a healthy and respectful discussion about mental health.

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

Nearly 1 in 2 Australians will experience a mental health condition at some point in their lifetime.

On the issue of mental health service provision for young adults, Mr Cable added: "Children and adolescents face a cliff edge in mental health services when they turn 18".
