Half of mental health disorders arise in adolescence

PM Theresa May appoints ‘world’s first’ minister for suicide prevention

Investment by governments and the involvement of the social, health and education sectors in comprehensive, integrated, evidence-based programmes for the mental health of young people is essential. The lack of awareness and the severe shortage of mental health professionals in the country add to the problem.

Corrigan said another reason why mental illness can be so costly is because it often affects younger people in their prime working years.

They are likely to debate the findings of a new report from WHO, which states that mental health should be explicitly included in global policy as mental health problems kill more young people than any other cause worldwide. Organizations, ministers and representatives from more than 50 countries will continue to discuss the many issues surrounding mental health in the capital today.

Divulging more about the mental health care, Mr. Brahm Mohindra said that there is a tendency of experimentation in young age group leading to indulgence in alcohol and illicit drug abuse which may lead to the mental health issues among youth.

Over the past few years, we've seen an influx in people speaking, writing, and educating others about their own mental health issues. "The challenges are to help people understand that it is an illness and there are medicines and treatment available". While social media keeps people connected, it builds additional pressure to project only the best.

Besides, he said, parents should consider the critical issues of where they lived in relation to where they should work, and where they lived in relation to where their children should go to school.

To young kids and teenagers, it isn't easy to spot someone who shows signs of common disorders such as anxiety, depression, attention-deficit/hyperactivity, or bipolar.

Dr Sands stressed the importance of mental health at every stage in life, from childhood to adulthood.

"Sadly, mental illness is taboo in many Chinese families and they feel ashamed to even talk about it", she said.

Responding to the new post, Hancock said the United Kingdom is "already making progress when it comes to suicide prevention" as the "suicide rate is at its lowest for seven years", but "we need to do more to challenge the stigma that people with mental ill-health face and make sure they feel they can reach out for help".

Experts say that women may be prone to some disorders (anxiety disorders) as they undergo a cyclic hormonal changes every month, but overall the prevalence is the same among both the sexes.

"We need to open up functional counselling centres in our institutions of learning and within the society generally. It is time to do the same for mental health".
