Event highlights mental health issues

The wide-ranging report did not give the breakdown of the potential $16 trillion economic impact it estimated by 2030

NAN reports that World Mental Health Day is observed on October 10 every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health.

Most employees (72 per cent) want employers to champion the cause of mental health and well-being, according to a survey published today - World Mental Health Day.

"It drains the hospital a lot because what it means is that we are buying medications for them for the mental illness, when they fall sick physically, we have to take care of them and sometimes we have to take them out to other health facilities and we have to pay".

Although it's rare for young children to die by suicide, adults need to realise that school-age children as young as five kill themselves, according to a startling new study. Equally, teachers need to be supported with their own mental health throughout their career.

There are activities we can be doing every day, starting within schools to build bridges within communities to allow people to always have a buddy, a friend and reduce the loneliness that so often can lead to mental health deterioration.

And perhaps most important, we can all talk about mental health and suicide openly, honestly and without stigma. Literacy and numeracy are seen as the key markers of success.

As the new term begins and children are heading off to school or university, it's vital that you recognise the warning signs of mental disorders.

Now is our time to turn our passion for a mentally healthy society into action by asking for social and political change in education.

"It is positive that mental health is being publicly talked about and I am confident that we are moving in the right direction which will ultimately benefit every athlete, coach and support staff member working in Olympic and Paralympic sport".

The regional director maintained that mental health remained fundamental to overall health and for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This blog originally appeared on the foundation's website.

He added: "Mental health problems have a massive impact on the workforce, and young people who come into jobs might not be prepared to enter a high pressure environment".

Model, actress and mental health advocate Kylie Verzosa from the Philippines discusses her experiences with depression, her journey to recovery and the ideas that shaped the online community, Mental Health Matters.

"For the past year, I have been making art about mental health and about how I was feeling".

"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".

"We can help them to make sense of what's making them anxious, because they don't always see what that is".
