  • October 7-13 is Mental Illness Awareness Week

Next, we must help connect those living with mental illness to the most appropriate levels of care.

Also, almost two-thirds (65%) said they would feel uncomfortable asking for a mental health sick day - with embarrassment being the top reason cited, followed by not liking to take time off work and not wanting to let colleagues down. It was first celebrated in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, a global mental health organization with members and contacts in more than 150 countries.

Mental health can affect anyone and it is important to spread awareness because psychological health issues are very prevalent in Britain (and the world).

When is World Mental Health Day 2018?

Dr Kaluwa said the World Health Organization had developed tools to support parents, caregivers and teachers to build life skills of children and adolescents, to help them cope with everyday challenges.

However, many a times the problem lies in the family's acceptance that there is a problem.

"Physical activity in any form can have a positive impact on a person's mental health, but swimming is unique because the buoyancy of water ensures everyone is able to take part at a pace that suits them", says Ian Cumming, chairperson of the Swimming and Health Commission. Mental health like physical health embodies a healthy lifestyle. But doing something kind or caring for someone who you are close to can help you to feel better, even just giving your time or skills to help someone out. Lack of transportation, housing, employment and a strong support system have a major impact on health outcomes - especially for those with mental illness - and when lacking, can make it especially hard to get proper medical care.

Three quarters of all mental health problems are established by the age of 24.

Parents express concern that the information could fall into the wrong hands and may follow children throughout their education, said Alisa LaPolt, executive director of the Florida chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Lack of treatment, in turn, also often leads to disability and lack of self-sufficiency. Just as we strive to keep ourselves physically fit and well, being aware of our mental health and how we are feeling - and thinking - is just as vital to our overall well-being. It is important that managers actively listen and take a flexible approach to the employee's requirements for support.

She said they must be guided and mentored as they grow up to understand themselves and the world around them. Tackling mental health issues among youth can help them have a better and brighter future and also help them make the country prosperous.
