Stigma remains as world celebrates Mental Health Day

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

"A healthy mind is every bit as important as a healthy body, but the stigma associated with mental health issues is often a huge factor is preventing those struggling, from seeking the right kind of help and support".

Investment by governments and the involvement of the social, health and education sectors in comprehensive, integrated, evidence-based programmes for the mental health of young people is essential.

"Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds". Consider the fact that you, or elements of "work", could be part of the cause.

Dr Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of the Lancet medical journal, which commissioned the report, said it highlighted the "shameful and shocking treatment of people with mental ill health around the world".

A study commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation found one in ten children aged between ten and fifteen say they have no one to talk to, or would not talk to anyone in school if they felt anxious or sad.

"The doctors are trained to recognise mental health issues and are assisted by EIS sports psychologists and performance lifestyle advisers.

Peng said she still remembered when she asked the audience to raise their hands if they were afraid of mental illnesses at a Chinese community event in the Bay Area three years ago, nearly everyone of the audience raised their hands. The conference focused on public awareness of critical issues of mental illness present in youths. While adults that come to the Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Yaba, weekly ranged between 800 and 1,000; she said emergency cases seen weekly in the facility ranged between 30 and 35 patients, adding; "We run clinics every day except on Wednesdays". The piece tackles the issues surrounding mental healthcare, or lack thereof, and asks that we all work to de-stigmatize illnesses that plague so many.

U.S. Politician Bernie Sanders echoed these sentiments from his personal Twitter account, writing, "As a nation (the U.S) must fix our broken healthcare system and give mental behavioral healthcare the attention and resources they deserve".
