Women more prone to mental disorders: Doctors

World Mental Health Day 2018

Today [October 10] marks World Mental Health Day, and the report notes that young people bear "the brunt of the burden of mental ill health".

One in five Canadians suffer from a mental illness, including in Kamloops.

In the meantime, Acting Director for the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Unit in the Ministry of Health Kevin Goulbourne is concerned that not many persons are able to detect young relatives who may be suffering from a mental illness.

Many people in society are affected by mental illness.

"Mental health in Jamaica is a big problem".

Lady Gaga, who co-founded the Born This Way youth advocacy group, and Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general at the World Health Organization, co-authored the piece and shared some shocking statistics to bring attention to the importance of mental health.

Mental Health Week will climax on October 13 with a 20/20 cricket match at the Police Recreation Grounds from 9 a.m.

Mr Stevens said: "As evidence in this country emerges - and the Chief Medical Officer is now looking at what we know and the impact of social media - we need to consider the links between health and technology for better, in many cases, but also for worse".

The Mental Health Act is used in cases where people require urgent treatment and pose a risk to themselves or others.

Mohammed Dewji, Africa’s youngest billionaire, kidnapped in broad daylight in Tanzania

A 10-year-old boy from Monmouth is leading a campaign to raise awareness among his peers of mental health.

"The youth are not equipped with enough coping skills or support structures to handle the kind of problems that they have to deal with every day", said SADAG's Cassey Chambers. I am not talking about those ones who are already with us.

The Lancet report found that in many countries, people with common mental disorders such as depression, anxiety and schizophrenia routinely suffer gross human rights violations - including shackling, torture and imprisonment. NAMI cites research that among adults with a serious mental illness, 62.9 percent received mental health services in the past year.

"For the past year, I have been making art about mental health and about how I was feeling".

You don't have to be an worldwide artist or the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) to make an impact.

But if things are really going to change, if people are going to feel comfortable to get the help they need, and services are going to become accessible to everybody no matter what wage they're on, the recognition needs to continue all throughout the year - not just today.

Dagg adds that if people ignore their mental well-being, it could have devastating impacts on their physical health.

"We intentionally created a model for the rooms that included both lay volunteers and clinical staff so that people experiencing mental health crisis, or people with questions about how to seek treatment, could get the best advice and support-without getting actual treatment in the room", Crevoshay explained.
