Lady Gaga Speaks Out About the International Mental Health Crisis

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

At least 177 countries were featured in a report from WHO earlier this year which charted the progressive implementation of its 2013 global action plan on mental health.

"In some cases, if not recognized and managed, these feelings lead to mental illness", said the Minister.

The Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health states that African Americans are 20% more likely to experience serious mental health problems than the general public. This week alone, it's estimated about 500,000 Canadians will miss work due to their mental health condition. They don't want to interact with people for merely two reasons, one is the don't want to talk about their mental illness as according to them nobody will understand because of its social stigma in our society.

Paul Avis, marketing director of Canada Life Group Insurance, said: "Mental health issues can be a vicious cycle for employees, fuelled by persistent presenteeism and the need to be "always on".

She said depression is the third leading cause of disease while suicide is the second leading cause among youths of 15 to 29 years.

About one in five young people experiences mental health problems; half of all mental health conditions start by the age of 14 but most cases are undetected and untreated, according to the United Nations chief. In 2018, $93.4 million was donated to mental health initiatives and 87 per cent of Canadians say they're now more aware of mental health because of the Bell Let's Talk campaign. We are delighted to partner with Hamad Medical Corporation to champion this important global initiative. Main triggers include relationship problems, family issues, abuse, loss or grief and trauma, while other contributing factors include exam stress, substance abuse, bullying, learning difficulties, financial issues and chronic illness. In fact, India has the highest suicide rate among young people in the world.

The goal of the conference was to develop programmes to meet the needs of the Bahamian youth suffering from mental health issues and to remove the negative stigma towards mental illness.

The World Health Organization's (WHO) theme for this year's World Mental Health Day is young people and mental health in a changing world. Being a mental health nurse means having the compassion, courage and drive to take on new challenges, knowing that it may be hard, but that you are making a difference in the lives of your patients who need that extra care.

According to the authors, the time is now to change the perceptions surrounding mental health issues and to better the way we care for those dealing with them in the process.
