Young people and mental health in a changing world

World Mental Health Day 2018: Raising awareness and combating stigma

"We work in a young dynamic, fast and sometimes very challenging industry, so it's never been more important for our people to pause and take a day for themselves, to work on their own mental health", says Spark Foundry CEO Sue Squillace.

According to Dr Alhassan, the Nigerian Psychological Association (NPA) participates actively in the celebration of the World Mental Health Day annually. In 2015 I received an MBE for my services to young people and in 2016 The Sunday Times & Debretts named me one of the 500 most influential people in Britain for my campaign work.

In a new op-ed for the Guardian published on Tuesday, Gaga, along with World Health Organization director general Tedros Adhanom, urged readers to confront the shame and stigma that keeps people from speaking out about mental health.

When is World Mental Health Day 2018?

For many, these are exciting times. "For some people, spending 30 minutes three times a week in the pool gives them a major sense of accomplishment". The majority of chronic and recurrent psychiatric problems which are faced by adults have their roots in adolescence.

"This suggests a large proportion of teenagers are suffering from mental and emotional health problems".

Global figures indicate that half of all mental illnesses begin by the age of 14 and three-quarters by mid-20s according to the World Health Organisation that marks World Mental Health Day.

The Dubai Government's push to remove the stigma attached to mental health through its "Happy Lives, Healthy Communities" strategy has spurred action among stakeholders in the health industry.

"I think it does [encourage people who are not feeling well to ask for help]".

"Finding out how many people get the illnesses was surprising, knowing how common it actually is".

He said it was also fundamental to the overall health and for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and Universal Health Coverage. Lack of treatment, in turn, also often leads to disability and lack of self-sufficiency.

Dr Sweta Adatia, specialist neurologist at RAK Hospital and RAK Diabetes Centre, Dubai, advises to tap into the power of the Vagus Nerve to improve and strengthen one's mental health.

Research has also found around 75 per cent of mental health disorders appear by the age of 24, while over the last decade nearly five times as many students have disclosed a mental health condition to their university compared to ten years ago.

"There is definitely something about admitting it but then worrying what the support is going to be like", said Ms Rategh. The statistics show that just 21% of employees receive dedicated mental health support from their employer.

"Aside from this, Gibraltar needs to have enough psychologists and psychiatrists on hand to ensure that they can deliver on their expertise effectively so that service users, both in the community and in the Ocean Views facility, as well as in prison, can have adequate access to therapeutic support". "Yet, those struggling with mental health problems are still being marginalized". For example, children with conduct disorder are twice more likely to drop out of school, four times more likely to become addicted to drugs and twenty times more likely to end up in jail.

"Mental health is now costing the United Kingdom economy billions, and the cost of non-intervention is far greater than the cost of intervention", he added.

It is estimated that 23 per cent of people living with a diagnosable mental health condition are not receiving the help they need.
