Mental health awareness programme kicks-off Wednesday

Sheffield gym offers FREE five day pass to honour World Mental Health Day

Awareness around the issue has prompted many people, including celebs, to speak up about their experience, making others suffering from the condition feel they are not alone.

We are aware that the World Federation for Mental Health created the day 24 years ago as a global platform for all nations to create awareness of mental health and issues associated with mental illness.

"We have seen a rise in mental illness in young people when, with all the knowledge we have, we should be seeing a decrease", said Professor Helen Herrman, president of the World Psychiatric Association.

Mental Health has always been a topic of low discussion. But that's a fallacy.

The new Wellbeing Leave entitlement can cover mental or physical health, medical procedures, when a partner or dependant requires care, or purely timeout for an employee's personal wellbeing.

Eighty per cent of people with any form of mental or substance use disorder in India and China do not seek treatment.

"It's about giving that person a little lift", she added. So when mental disorders in the young are ignored, they can go on to ruin all aspects of their well-being in the future. One in four people across the United Kingdom experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives, and in England, one in six workers experiences stress, anxiety or depression in any given week.

The psychologists said certain habits and the social stigma attached with seeking help or speaking to a mental health professional have predisposed and worsened mental health conditions in the country.

"News is flooded with reports of high suicide rates, growing depression and drug dependence".

Today, we need to open up and talk about mental health problems. Mental Health Week is a great opportunity for us all to stop and reflect on what we want to achieve in terms of leading happy, healthy and productive lives.

Two Israelis killed, third wounded, in West Bank shooting
On Friday, three Palestinians, including a 13-year-old boy was killed during protests in the Gaza strip and the Jewish state. The Israeli Defense Forces said they are investigating how the suspect was able to bring a weapon into the industrial park.

The challenges the youth face are unique since they are at an important cusp of their life, moving from youth to adulthood.

"A child can suffer huge stress due to small reasons like getting scolded or bullied in school, disputes between parents and even day-to-day pressure like forcing for a haircut", said Dr Arjun Raj Kunwar, child and adolescent psychiatrist at Kanti Children's Hospital.

This demographic is also easily excitable, according to Dr Dutta.

It is, indeed, disturbing to see very young children wake up around 3:30am and leave home about 4:30am because they live far from school.

"Most of them indeed are, but much less so than we used to think".

"Mental health affects everyone, either directly or through our relatives and close friends". Parents can also look out for any initial symptoms of mental health.

"Sessions on stress management amongst other topics are also part of our vibrant workplace wellness programme", Mrs. Brandy-Williams said.

Nationally the focus has turned to mental health among young people, a growing problem which is woefully underfunded.

Ms Doyle-Price, now minister for mental health, inequalities and suicide prevention, will ensure every local area has effective plans in place to stop unnecessary deaths and investigate how technology can help identify those most at risk.
