Stigma remains as world celebrates Mental Health Day

Thomas Sanderson has donated 3,000 to the Rowans Hospice. Members of the firm's charity committee handed the cheque over to Gemma Carden and Verity James from the Rowans

Meanwhile, a new report will be published into the state of young people's mental health every year on World Mental Health Day. Among adolescents, depression is the third leading mental health illness.

Psychiatrist P.V. Bhandary said on Wednesday that more awareness needs to be created on mental health and illness in society.

"Many Chinese parents have no knowledge of mental illnesses and they don't know how to help their children cope with daily life when the kids are mentally challenged", said Peng. Sport and active recreation are not only one of the most cost-effective ways of supporting mental health, but as we continue to understand its impacts, the research is showing it's one of the most powerful approaches for reducing and preventing mental distress.

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. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), half of all mental illness begins by the age of 14, but many cases will go undetected and untreated. "Without people there is no business, so workplaces should facilitate interpersonal connection - for example, break-out areas and dedicated collaboration spaces help to avoid feeling isolated, and voluntary work can be a powerful and satisfying activity that is dually beneficial".

The move comes on World Mental Health Day, and as officials gather in London for the first global mental health summit. The emphasis is on improving physical health outcomes for people who experience mental health conditions and addictions.

Serving as a mental health nurse means using your communication skills to help your patients get well.

The HSE's national director for mental health operations, Jim Ryan, encouraged anyone who is concerned about their own or someone else's mental health, to visit the website.

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.

"The course is proving exceptionally popular to date which we hope is indicative of the recognition that this very important and very prevalent issue is now receiving".

"Employers must show that they are serious about supporting employees with mental health and stress-related issues".

There are a lot of talks on championing good mental health, but one of the most powerful statements was from the American singer-songwriter, Lady Gaga.

Many places in the United Kingdom are starting to recognise the importance of this research and starting to change the game but we still have so far to go.
