Library will celebrate World Mental Health Day 2018 and promote awareness of mental health issues on Wednesday, October 10.

World Mental Health Day, 10 October, is a day for global mental health education and advocacy; an initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health to raise public awareness of mental issues worldwide. Psychosocial support can be provided in schools and other community settings and training for health workers to enable them to detect and manage mental health disorders can be put in place, improved or expanded. However, men had more than twice the rate of substance use disorders (7%) compared to women (3%).

Ghana is now bedeviled with massive students' failures, especially at the Senior High School level, a phenomenon that has become a problem to policy makers.

One in ten teenage deaths in South Africa every year are the result of suicide according to SADAG. These members will need to be trained and certified to handle mental health emergency situations like meltdowns and suicide prevention.

Although suicide affects both genders, three-quarters of all suicides in 2016 in Britain were male.

Mrs May will announce that new mental health support teams will start working in schools across England next year. Treatments are available for the millions of mentally ill Americans but according to the NIMH, four out of five people with mental illness never seek professional help.

Counsellor of Serendip Guardians in Dimapur, Bokatoli shared in details about the mental health scenario in Nagaland.

She said that having cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for stage fright while on Strictly Come Dancing made her realise how important mental health issues are.


Health spending in England was around £125 billion in 2017/18 and is expected to rise to over £127 billion by 2019/20. There is a time where we may not be doing great when it comes to mental health, and that is fine.

Mental health and wellbeing are by far one of the most neglected areas in our country.

Depression is a serious concern among youth and suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds.

In fact, statistics from the Office of National Statistics show the number of young suicides is increasing. Spending more time with children, too, can help.

Next, we must help connect those living with mental illness to the most appropriate levels of care.

However, the government established their first set of waiting time targets for the NHS in 2016. We need conversation between young people and adults to determine the issues within the system, and evidence-based research to address these issues. The survey of 1,000 people also showed that a tenth of employers did not recognise stress as a condition, despite being aware of it as a growing problem.

For information about mental health problems, advice and support visit Mind's website here.

So, early interventions, prevention, resilience support and programs to educate young people and the world around them should be instituted by providing balanced lifestyle actions which includes balanced diet, exercise, and healthy sleep hygiene.
