Professor Kay-Lambkin also sits on the panel with director and chief scientist at Black Dog Institute Scientia Professor Helen Christensen, and Professor Patrick McGorry, executive director of Orygen, the National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health.

The walk will start from The Piazza at 1pm on Wednesday.

"National's Mental Health spokesperson Matt Doocey and National's Health caucus have been out in the community meeting with New Zealanders, including those who cope with mental health issues and those who provide support, to hear about what we can do to better help them".

Observed each year on October 10, World Mental Health Day aims to raise awareness and change attitudes surrounding mental health issues around the world by encouraging people to looking after their own well-being. It is estimated that only 20 percent of these child and adolescents are ever diagnosed and receive treatment with a mental health disorder and 80 percent are not receiving treatment prolonging the lifetime and impact of their illness. The emotional and social withdrawal associated with mental illness the patient goes through, lead its sufferers to be less likely to reach out to friends and family for help or to accept it.

"If we educate young people then they grow up with that knowledge and take it into the workplace but they also have the knowledge to support themselves", she said. Depression is one of the leading causes of illness and disability among adolescents. "On the other hand, urban families are better versed with such concepts and are more open where mental health issues surface".

Additionally, the GMWS said the "strain" on the psychiatric services has recently been brought to the fore, including the delays in sentencing in court due to pending psychiatric reports.

In fact, when asked about the impact of swimming on their day-to-day life, 43% of regular swimmers in the YouGov survey said it makes them feel happier, while 26% are more motivated to complete daily tasks and 15% believe life feels more manageable.

"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".

Parents, teachers and physicians need to be cautious for the warning signs among youth which may be the indicative of mental illnesses.

It explained that the lack of such a facility can have dire effects on the diagnosis and treatment of children.

The charity has reported a sharp rise in demand for its half, full and two-day mental health first aid courses since they began in 2017.

"We have done without for far too long".

"This was a GSLP commitment in the 2011 Manifesto and we would like it to be acted on".

If and when the employee is ready, the manager should work with them to develop a support and action plan to enable the employee to maintain a good standard of performance while ensuring their wellbeing. The vast majority of individuals suffering from poor mental health will show obvious signs, which are easy to spot in the workplace.

The psychologist said nearly all human beings have the potential to develop mental health problems at one point or the other, "no matter how old, whether male or female, rich or poor, or the ethnic group they belong to". It is now vital that we continue to talk about children's mental health.

"The time has come for some radical improvements to be made".
