#WorldMentalHealthDay: Raising awareness on mental health issues globally

A new online survey by The Cohen Veterans Network and The National Council for Behavioral Health finds that, despite increasing demand, a lack of awareness of services and social stigma around seeking mental health care, persists in America. "Yet despite the universality of the issue, we struggle to talk about it openly or to offer adequate care or resources".

According to a press release by the office of the special adviser, media, Edo State, Mr Obaseki said the societal discrimination against people with mental health problems has further compounded efforts by governments, experts and other stakeholders at designing products for the treatment of patients and reintegrating them into the society.

Parents who are anxious about their children's mental wellbeing can call YoungMinds' parent helpline on 0808 802 5544 between 9.30am and 4pm Monday to Friday.

Children and adolescents in humanitarian settings are particularly vulnerable to mental distress and illness, World Health Organization said.

Originally from Sheffield, she sparked a row past year when she said many elderly people are "sitting in homes that really are too big for their needs" - and should not expect to pass them on to their children. The op-ed starts with Gaga and Dr. Adhanom discussing the alarmingly high suicide rate, which they cite as the second leading cause of death of people between ages 15 and 29 globally. We can all learn how to offer support to loved ones going through a hard time. Harmful use of alcohol and illicit drugs among adolescents is a major issue in many countries and can lead to risky behaviours such as unsafe sex or dangerous driving.

"We can all help to build communities that understand, respect and prioritize mental wellness". This is to clear existing confusion in the public about the various psychological professionals and services they provide and to facilitate appropriate access for people with mental health needs.

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

"The new Mental Health Strategy and the other measures we are promoting today demonstrate that our work in the area is consistently evolving and improving as we move forward".

The new campaign highlights that while we can all feel stressed, anxious, low or have trouble sleeping, there are simple actions we can take to manage these issues and prevent them from becoming more serious.
