Mental health crisis could cost world USD 16 trillion by 2030

Green Party MP Chloe Swarbrick in Parliament

10 October - is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy.

According to Dr Alhassan, the Nigerian Psychological Association (NPA) participates actively in the celebration of the World Mental Health Day annually.

And this week sports organisations and youth groups will also spend some time with each of their teams or groups before or after training or meeting to discuss mental health. However, it's important that mental health never falls off the agenda, that we continue lobbying for important changes to legislation and keep pushing for mental health to be a priority in every workplace. For many, these are exciting times.

"Part of it has to be these illnesses being really poorly understood. people with lived experience haven't necessarily been comfortable to share their experience publicly".

The age of onset for many disorders, mainly depression, was going down. The habits formed during adolescence become one's lifestyle, milestones with various long term implications for adult health. We've started that by training our staff, our reps and members in Mental Health First Aid and by encouraging our employers to do the same to tackle stigma and discrimination at work.

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

For too many, lack of first-hand knowledge about mental illness coupled with inadequate support in coping with it is overwhelming.

Yankees look to save season after Game 3 embarrassment
It's worth noting that even Holt indicated following Monday's game that he didn't expect to be in the lineup for Game 4. David Price suffered the loss as he surrendered three earned runs on three hits with two strikeouts over 1 2/3 innings.

"This is a vital and important step forward in promoting the mental health of individuals in the Midlands, but also nationally". While people brag about their medical conditions like heart disease, surgeries, ICU stays and the like, they treat a mental health problem like a guilty secret to be pushed under the carpet.

According to WHO, teenagers as young as 14 suffer from mental health issues. The more we talk about mental health, the more we can identify and support those in need. We are pleased that more people are talking about mental health, but there's still a way to go to ensure there is the help out there for people to reach out for. Pointing employees towards alternative support mechanisms outside of work can help them get the help they need without having to involve colleagues.

Matt Day, Consultant in Healthcare Public Health at Public Health England in the East Midlands, said: "With the pressures of modern life, it's normal to feel stressed, anxious, low or have trouble sleeping some of the time".

"At the end of the day, we want to open conversations and equip other people in the community". Social media has spawned problems like sleep disorders, the Fear of Missing Out (FOMO), self-esteem issues and cyberbullying, factors which can impact the mental health of youngsters.

"It is becoming increasingly obvious that we need to invest in awareness, diagnosis and treatment, very early on, in order to offset the worst consequences of these conditions, whenever possible".

"A common problem with the mental health system is the social stigma attached to seeking help or speaking to a mental health professional".

"We are aware that improvements to the system have taken place over the years but we feel we can not wait another two, four, six years for certain changes to be made".
