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.

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.
