Our mind is equally important to us as our body. By working together, we can make a real difference to our workplaces, and to the experiences of our colleagues at work. It can include a clinical assessment by mental health specialists, diagnosis, counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy as well as other specialist help.

While people brag about their medical conditions like heart disease, surgeries, ICU stays and the like, they treat a mental health problem like a guilty secret to be pushed under the carpet. But today, they can no longer to brushed under the carpet. "It's well worth time to talk about it, a whole lot more".

Mental health disorders are on the rise in every country in the world and could cost the global economy up to US$16 trillion (S$22 trillion) between 2010 and 2030 if a collective failure to respond is not addressed, according to an expert report published on Tuesday (Oct 9).

The Society has planned a walk commencing from the Piazza - where a number of groups will be raising awareness of mental health - down to No.6 Convent Place, where it will hand in a statement for the Chief Minister, with some suggestions for procuring better mental health provision in Gibraltar. "About 10 years back, I would see only five to ten patients a day".

India is standing on the threshold of a mental health epidemic with a greater number of people affected by mental health issues in the country than the entire population of Japan.

"Let us be more accepting of those with mental health challenges including our young people who continue to face many challenges in their daily lives".

'And we can give the mental well-being of our children the priority it so profoundly deserves'.

Now as general secretary of Community trade union, I still listen to those stories - from steelworkers who have lost a loved one as a result of mental ill health to care workers who are overworked and stressed due to their day-to-day job. Other causes could be genetic factors as well as traumatic incidents in a teenager's life.

Matt Hancock, 40, appeared on BBC Breakfast to speak about how the new Suicide Prevention Minister will acquire funding to improve mental health treatment. People will readily swallow pain-killers, totally ignorant that they have far more lethal side effects than any anti-depressant - because it is for treating a bodily disorder. It could be that they have entered college, have started a job for the first time or are living overseas alone.

Around 75% of cases of mental illness start before a child reaches their 18th birthday, while 50% of mental health problems in adults, aside from dementia, take root before the age of 15. However, majority are not treated. The key learning provided during the course should be available to everyone in Scotland who manages people - line managers play a crucial role in spotting signs and issues amongst their team. In addition, approximately half (52 percent) would use a chatbot powered by artificial intelligence to support their mental wellbeing, and slightly more (55 percent) believe that virtual reality can be helpful in managing mental health issues. They work closely with departments in social care, health and community and business networks to provide supported housing, talking therapies and community based programmes.

Preventing mental health issues among youth has to begin first by making them aware of what it really is and how they can tackle the early strikes of mental health.

Why would parents and school authorities put the very children they are supposed to bring up, through such a stressful practice?
