Mental Health Is Public Health

Here's how to protect your mental health at work

Nearly half (47 per cent) of men with a mental health condition have never raised it at work, compared to 43 per cent of female sufferers. The result of suicide impacts friends, family and colleagues. Counselling services are urgently required for family members of suicide victims to support them to cope and avert this unfortunate event happening in other family members. Every person in Bermuda can be a partner to the effort to improve mental health in Bermuda. However, these warnings don't always address more complex issues like mental health. This information is alarming by all standards. Though suicide is a global issue, almost 79 percent of suicides occur in low- and middle-income countries.

Fact: This false perception underlies some of the most damaging stereotypes for people with mental illness. Committing suicide or attempting to commit suicide is therefore a criminal act.

19-year-old Floridian college student Abraham Biggs Jr., above, who suffered from bipolar disorder, committed suicide in front of an online audience in November, 2008. For baby boomers, the number was the lowest, with less than 10 percent quitting a job for mental-health purposes. National policies or strategies for suicide prevention should be developed and implemented in line with evidence, best practices and worldwide and regional human rights conventions. Ministerial incompetence has left us with a crisis in the workforce: 4,500 fewer mental health nurses and chronic shortages of consultant psychiatrists.

"I'm encouraged by the community coming together and making mental health the focus of today".

As often said knowledge is power. Starting at the top and investing in mental health education are critical.

However, since 2017, there have been no new specific mental health activities proposed. More importantly, suicide prevention training for Global Positioning System is effective at reducing the risk of future suicide by 50%. When you are not feeling okay, sharing those feelings is the best way to get help when you need it.


If mental health problems are detected early, children can be supported with their mental health at school.

Recognising barriers to seeking care is essential. "That's why Mental Health First Aid is so valuable". An individual may be aware of concerns and may wish to make a change; however, there may be obstacles that inhibit their accessibility to services.

Men are most prone to suffering in silence, with male sufferers less likely than women to discuss a mental health issue at work. Instead, mental health is now part of the Commission's wider chronic diseases activities. The need for emotional support by families, communities, schools, corporate organisations can not be overstated.

If you or someone you know is experiencing mental health symptoms, a list of resources can be found here.

If you want to talk to someone or are experiencing suicidal thoughts, text the Crisis Text Line at 741-741 or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. "Modern Ghana will not be responsible or liable for any inaccurate or incorrect statements contained in this article".
