Stigma remains as world celebrates Mental Health Day

Lady Gaga co-writes new op-ed about suicide and mental health

Now we must turn those words into action.

Its 'Do You See What I See?' campaign challenges perceptions about mental illness in Australia and encourages everyone to look at mental health in a more positive light, in an effort to reduce stigma and make way for more people to seek the help and support they deserve. We need youth at every table.

Present estimates show people with mental illnesses account for almost 6.5% of India's population and is projected to increase to 20% by2020.

With regard to 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.

Issues such as homelessness, exposure to violence and perceived racism are some factors that can worsen the effects of mental health illness in African Americans.

According to WHO, "For many, these are exciting times".

And we can not stand by and allow this injustice to continue.

The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) together with health care providers will host several events to mark the World Mental Health Day, today.

The Commission also recommended a "wholesale shift to community-based care" for the mentally ill.

That is why we are making education about mental health and resilience a mandatory part of the national curriculum.


The theme of the day for this year is "young people and mental health in a changing world". This is a battle that is a long way from being won, with treatment times out of control, and overworked and under resources NHS and medications ever increasing in cost, these are issues that will take time.

But we haven't done this for their mental wellbeing.

Better mental health support in the workplace can save United Kingdom business up to £8 billion a year, while early intervention for people can help reduce the cost of treating people with these conditions.

So we are going to change this.

To help prevent mental distress and illness among adolescents and young adults, parents need to be aware of and understand the early warning signs and symptoms of mental illness, said Peng, president of Mental Health Association for Chinese Communities (MHACC).

Mind provides friends, family, carers and others with tips on how to help someone with a mental health problem.

Now, when I first became Prime Minister, I stood on the steps of Downing Street and pledged to fight the burning injustices in our society.

She continued: "We can end the stigma that has forced too many to suffer in silence".

A study commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation found one in ten children aged between ten and fifteen say they have no one to talk to, or would not talk to anyone in school if they felt anxious or sad.

So let's do that. "Managers can play a critical role in helping to foster a culture where employees feel able to talk openly about their mental health and ask for support when they need it".
