Lancet report: Mental health disorders on the rise in India

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

Separately, research by Deloitte suggests that up to five million people in the United Kingdom could have a mental health condition.

However, according to the PLP a survey carried out by Unison in 2017 stated that 68 per cent of staff who work in mental health services felt they are reaching crisis point due to a lack of beds, staff and investment. Currently, too little attention is paid to the issue, as a result of which tens of thousands of people suffer in silence.

Tuesday's opening session was attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who previously launched the Heads Together mental health campaign with Prince Harry. To observe World Mental Health Day, Peng gave a talk at a seminar hosted by John George Psychiatric Hospital in San Leandro, California, on Wednesday night for parents of teenagers. We have a long way to go as a state in the way that we fund treatment. If you have the resources to donate to cause that supports mental illness, do that.

It is widely accepted worldwide that mental health issues become evident in someone around the age of 14 years, but it takes up to about 10 years to show the full manifestation. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds.

"Their goal is to decrease the stigma about mental illness and suicide prevention among college students specifically", said Sammy Stoll, the president of the University of Iowa chapter of Active Minds. They, however, pointed out that mental illness affects men and women in different ways.

"In my time as health minister I have met many people who have been bereaved by suicide, and their stories of pain and loss will stay with me for a long time", she said. "And we can all be a part of a new movement - including people who have faced mental health illness themselves - to call on governments and industry to put mental health at the top of their agendas".

The move, meant to tackle the tragedy of 4,500 people taking their own lives in England each year, comes on World Mental Health Day.

I am proud that my own department runs mental health and well-being events, and is growing our pool of mental health first aiders, developing a culture where people can speak openly about their mental health problems.

Lisa Hamill, UK people director at global facilities management company Atalian Servest, also added: "With depression now thought to be the number one illness around the world according to the World Health Organisation, businesses need to provide the support their people need". Despite their success, they were wrecked by depression because just like us, they are also normal individuals.

The president of NMA noted that it was incumbent upon society to help young people develop mental resilience from the earliest age, in order to cope with the challenges of today's world.

She said the medicines to treat mental illness should be subsidized and more departments should be opened for mental health patients in major public sector hospital.
