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

PM Theresa May appoints ‘world’s first’ minister for suicide prevention

Data on the National Alliance on Mental Illness shows that 50 percent of chronic mental illnesses starts by age fourteen.

A spokesman from Therapy Dogs said: "Its a fact that spending time with a puppy or kitten reduces stress and have a great impact on our mental health thats why our pets are so popular".

The measures come as London hosts the first ever Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit, organized together with the OECD and supported by the World Health Organization (WHO).

On the problem with suicide and mental health stigma: "By the time you finish reading this, at least six people will have killed themselves around the world". People do not know the difference between a mental health issue and madness.

"Our message is that, by redirecting your energies towards boosting your physical health, reaching out to those around you, becoming more aware of your feelings, trying new things and focusing on kindness and sharing, you can combat numerous negative emotions and behaviours that affect our everyday lives".

Available data also indicates that the three main mental hospitals in Ghana receive more than one hundred thousand patients in a year with thirty thousand of them suffering from cannabis-induced conditions.

Daily Mail reported that the schools plan on educating students on identifying signs of mental health issues, resources for help, and the negative stigma that surrounds mental illness.

This is why Health Minister, Dr. Duane Sands yesterday stressed the importance of raising the issue of mental health in conversations. Adewale, therefore, called on the National Assembly to pass the Mental Health Bill without delay in the interest of Nigerians before the situation gets out of hand.

Further, this life expectancy gap between people living with mental illness and the rest of the population is getting larger every decade.

Also, the common man is over-stressed with family responsibilities and work pressure, and has less time to socialise and de-stress.

We live in a country where waiting lists are months long, misdiagnoses are rampant, medication is handed out as a quick-fix, and many (but not all) doctors are still dismissing symptoms as well, essentially, nothing. In 2018, $93.4 million was donated to mental health initiatives and 87 per cent of Canadians say they're now more aware of mental health because of the Bell Let's Talk campaign.

"The whole school joined together to support World Mental Health Day and the explosion of yellow was spectacular".

Wade said having World Mental Health Day is important to let people who struggle with mental illness know they have options for help.

"Mental health services are still being underfunded by the Conservative government".

Lady Gaga and Adhanom closed by saying, "The two of us have taken different paths in life".
