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

The wide-ranging report did not give the breakdown of the potential $16 trillion economic impact it estimated by 2030 PM Theresa May appoints ‘world’s first’ minister for suicide prevention

She says one in five children will develop a mental illness. "Research shows there is a fourfold return on investment for every dollar spent on treating depression and anxiety, the most common mental health conditions, making spending on the issue a great investment for both political leaders and employers, in addition to generating savings in the health sector". Schreier said the university takes serious measures to address mental health and prevent suicide.

"The Government needs to take this hidden condition far more seriously".

Faduyile stated this on Thursday in Akure during inauguration of "Carry My Cross Mental Health Centre", a non governmental organisation aimed to provide services to patients of mental health illness.

"The lack of resources to deal with this issue is another example of a false economy brought about austerity".

Half of all mental illness begins by the age of 14, but most cases go undetected and untreated, according to the World Health Organization.

After communities came together yesterday for World Mental Health Day local vets and charities have reported that pets are playing an increasingly important role in helping our mental health.

Firstly, regardless of what grown-ups might think, children and young people have levels of resilience and resourcefulness - whatever their ability, identity, cultural identification, or developmental level - that would put many adults to shame.

Keeping in view the fact that half of all mental illness begins by the age of 14, World Health Organization urges, "Much can be done to help build mental resilience from an early age to help prevent mental distress and illness among adolescents and young adults, and to manage and recover from mental illness".

There is, however, sufficient evidence available to try and analyze why so many young people at the peak of their lives suffer depression.

As a mental health nurse, the challenges are high but the rewards are even higher.

'Mental health services are still being underfunded by the Conservative government, with one in 10 CCGs (clinical commissioning groups) failing to meet the mental health investment standard in the a year ago - that is leading to adults having to wait as many as four months for treatment in certain areas, while one in four children are being rejected for treatment after referral'.

I am proud that my own department runs mental health and well-being events, and is growing our pool of mental health first aiders, developing a culture where people can speak openly about their mental health problems.

"It is positive that mental health is being publicly talked about and I am confident that we are moving in the right direction which will ultimately benefit every athlete, coach and support staff member working in Olympic and Paralympic sport".

Unlike costly physical illnesses like cancer, where expenses are largely hospital-based, mental health costs are often indirect, such as not being able to work.

"Seeing a piece of them really makes it feel personal", she said.

Fry, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 37, added his voice, tweeting: "This World Mental Health Day let's shine a light on mental health across the world".
