Mental health services for young fail to live up to the promise

Watch ‘Through the Storm’ – an LFC documentary on mental health

Looking to the future, the pair calls upon readers and national governments to put more funding into mental health support, before highlighting a collection of research on how to promote and protect mental health and treat mental illness, which will also be published this week in the The Lancet medical journal.

Mental health issues signify disorders that affect mood, thinking and behaviour of an individual due to depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and even eating disorders and addictive behaviours.

Gaga and Adhanom go on to draw attention to the lack of support that mental health receives - less than one percent of global aid - and call upon countries to do more.

With the growing awareness about mental health, it's possible that you picked up on some warning signs.

"One in four of us will have to deal with a mental health condition at some point in our lives" Gaga and Ghebreyesus said, adding that suicide is "the second leading cause of death globally among 15-29 year olds".

Responding to the new post, Hancock said the United Kingdom is "already making progress when it comes to suicide prevention" as the "suicide rate is at its lowest for seven years", but "we need to do more to challenge the stigma that people with mental ill-health face and make sure they feel they can reach out for help". "It's time we should change the perception", adds Dr Desousa.

Aref was recently released, but remains in immigration detention pending his deportation to Iraq, according to the Times Union. In more recent years, he was the owner of a low-budget motel, the Crest Inn Suites and Cottages, outside Saratoga Springs.

Having good mental health can help us feel and function better, have more positive relationships with those around us, and deal with and manage hard times now and into the future.

The harmful use of alcohol and illicit drugs among adolescents were also identified as contributing to risky behaviours such as violence, unsafe sex and dangerous driving.

You can get involved by reading the WFMH report about all the issues young people are facing today, donating to mental health charities such as YoungMinds, and sharing stories on social media with the #WorldMentalHealthDay tag.

"As a government, we have delineated our health system for easy appreciation of the roles required by all stakeholders in the sector".

"Suicide is the most extreme and visible symptom of the larger mental health emergency we are so far failing to adequately address". We have commenced the construction of primary health centres across the state to reach all Edo people and residents irrespective of where they reside.
