Our mind is equally important to us as our body.

'I am delighted we are appointing Jackie Doyle-Price as our dedicated Minister for Suicide Prevention, and I know she will make a real difference. Mental Health Week is a great opportunity for us all to stop and reflect on what we want to achieve in terms of leading happy, healthy and productive lives.

While accountancy firms and businesses in general are introducing policies like flexible working and encouraging wellbeing to help combat stress at work, only 30 percent of managers have actually received any training around mental health.

As the interview was coming to a close, Munchetty questioned the Health Secretary about the length of time people have to wait to be seen by a mental health professional. But today, they can no longer to brushed under the carpet.

"The more we talk about it, just like we did with breast cancer, the more normal it becomes and the more normal it becomes, the more people will come forward and speak about it", she said.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that around 300 million people worldwide have depression, and 50 million have dementia.

The rate of Suicide has doubled in India in the last five years; 16 teenagers kill themselves every day.

Every single person has mental health.

With teenagers and young adults the focus of World Mental Health Day on October 10 this year, Dr Sebolelo Seape, chairperson of the Psychiatry Management Group (PsychMG) says the prevention of teen suicides starts with better understanding of the symptoms of depression. That's why one of the personal highlights of my work on improving wellbeing in the profession is becoming a Mental Health First Aider. Triggers seem to range from broken romantic relationships, stress related to studies and examinations, difficulties in dealing with one's sexuality, body image disturbances, inability to manage screen time and a complex relationship with social media.

"Mental health is the foundation of human capability that makes each life worthwhile and meaningful". Other causes could be genetic factors as well as traumatic incidents in a teenager's life.

Dr Appau said the MHA was addressing the issue of stigmatisation and discrimination against psychiatric patients by placing emphasis on community care rather than institutional care, and ensuring that mental health care was seen as any other illness for which patients could walk into health facilities for care. It could be that they have entered college, have started a job for the first time or are living overseas alone.

What frightens The Chronicle most is the fact that most these cases go undetected and untreated, with serious long-term consequences for mental health, according to the Country Representative of the WHO, Dr Owen Kaluwa. However, a lot of them are not treated.

According to World Health Organization, one in four people visiting a doctor is suffering from depression.

Ultimately, mental health affects primarily how you feel, think and behave.

Preventing mental health issues among youth has to begin first by making them aware of what it really is and how they can tackle the early strikes of mental health.

The campaign was launched six months ago and calls on everyone to check in on their friends, and talk about mental health with those around them.
