Health Minister Greg Hunt: "Research into causes, prevention and treatment of mental illness and suicide is vital to reduce these figures". This proactive use of technology is happening as significant proportions of people report mental health challenges, with more than half (55 percent) of respondents saying they're either experiencing mental health issues now or have had mental health issues in the past.

It is estimated that 23 per cent of people living with a diagnosable mental health condition are not receiving the help they need. Society has always conditioned us to believe that mental health issues are a stigma and that they can't be spoken about.

Ghana is now bedeviled with massive students' failures, especially at the Senior High School level, a phenomenon that has become a problem to policy makers.

One in six people are aged 10-19 years.

However, there has been a significant decrease in male suicide in the United Kingdom over the last 30 years. "There is a need for conducting a scientific study to look deep into the rising suicide incidents and other mental health-related issues in Chitral as a mere one-day camp will not suffice", he suggested.

And while it might be mental health week this week, Hudson said the matters needs ongoing attention the other 51 weeks of the year.

Health spending in England was around £125 billion in 2017/18 and is expected to rise to over £127 billion by 2019/20. The statistics show that just 21% of employees receive dedicated mental health support from their employer.

This is why, celebrities, business leaders and MPs all came together at parliament today, in the week of World Mental Health Day, to celebrate the fantastic achievements of the campaign so far, and most importantly, call for change.

Suicide is the leading cause of death among men and women aged 20-34.

Meanwhile, the second Mercedes driver, Valtteri Bottas , finished in P2 behind Hamilton in both sessions. Another factor which might complicate matters is the weather.


More than a quarter (26%) of people aged 16-24 years and a similar proportion (25%) of people aged 25-34 years had a 12-month mental disorder, compared with 6% of those aged 75-85 years old.

It also warns of falling numbers of child psychiatrists, at a time when demand continues to rise.

In addition, children with depression and anxiety are the most likely to be left undiagnosed. Actually, those suffering from mental illnesses are more often the victims of violence, withdrawn, frightened, and/or lonely.

Despite aims to cut waiting times, it can take a decade for many young people to receive help.

So, early interventions, prevention, resilience support and programs to educate young people and the world around them should be instituted by providing balanced lifestyle actions which includes balanced diet, exercise, and healthy sleep hygiene. It was initially started by the World Federation for Mental Health.

There are lots of places to get support.

Aliveyogi.com director Lauren Verona said the studio was offering the free class, titled Mindful for Mental Health, to share the mental health benefits of the mindfulness practice.

It is important for the patients as well as for the people surrounding the sufferer, to understand that mental illness is a disease of the brain, just like pancreatitis or liver disease.
