  • One in six people every week experience a common mental health problem like anxiety or depression

The minister pointed out that the destigmatisations of mental illness would go a far way in creating a better, more caring Jamaica.

This year's World Mental Health Day - observed yesterday on October 10 - made a decision to have "Young people and mental health in a changing world" as its theme. "Talk through some of the issues cause a lot of the mental health diagnosis's can be processed through medication management, but through process through therapy".

Professor Vikram Patel, one of the Commission's editors, said that mental health "is the foundation of human capability that makes each life worthwhile and meaningful".

According to the report, mental disorders are rising in every single country in the world and will cost the world's economy $16 trillion by 2030. "But the truth is, in the scheme of things, the people of Bellevue Hospital have been abandoned, basically, and you don't know they exist until something happens".

Athletes and staff will have access to a mental health screening programme when they join and leave the elite set-up. Without factoring in suicide, mental health issues are projected to reduce economic growth in both India and China by more than $9 trillion respectively between 2016 and 2030.

The focus of this year's WMHD is on young people. The report found that self-harm is the second most common cause of death for girls aged 15-19, and the third most common for boys of that age range (see chart). He said that changing dynamics of society with increasing culture of nuclear family/ disturbed family/ higher divorce rates lead to mental health issues in youth.

American and Russian astronaut rescued after emergency landing following rocket booster malfunction
In 2015, CRS-7 launched a Dragon capsule on a Falcon 9 rocket to resupply the space station, but the second stage exploded. Hague and Ovchinin were scheduled to dock at the International Space Station six hours after launch.

Social shifts, decent education, and pop culture have all played vital roles in the normalisation of mental health problems and the prevalence of these conditions in every day life, meaning that technically, there's never been a better time to talk.

"The public, emergency physicians and mental health professionals all agree that emergency departments are inappropriate venues for mentally ill and distressed people".

It would also be unfair to suggest that this day of recognition doesn't help people, because it does. "You don't have to be an global artist or the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) to make an impact".

Kufre gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja to commemorate the World Mental Health Day.

"Much can be done to help build mental resilience from an early age to help prevent mental distress and illness among adolescents and young adults, and to manage and recover from mental illness".

Recent data from the Ghana Health Service has revealed that about 41 percent of Ghanaians have some form of psychological illness.
