According to Dr Nnena Ezeigwe, the Head of Non-Communicable Diseases, "The Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) is concerned about the rising cases of mental health disorders and associated substance abuse".

For nearly two years now we have encouraged more discussion about mental health issues through our award-winning #speakyourmind campaign.

On World Mental Health Day, mental health care providers point to the urgent need to address that fact that the onset age of depression and mental health disorders is coming down.

More than 100 business people from across the county will gather this week for a special conference focusing on mental health at work.

Dr R Balakrishnan, psychiatrist at Ramachandra Hospital, said that there are more people seeking help, especially youngsters, due to increased awareness and exposure to the wealth of information available on the Internet.

Those wanting to help raise awareness of mental health issues can choose to wear a green ribbon, seen as the global symbol for the movement.

"Historically, everywhere in the world, it would seem, mental health has always been underfunded". Over time, having good mental health may also reduce our risk of physical health problems.

Depression and other mental health disorders have a serious impact on the individual's ability to function and perform their normal activities, she said, while the WHO notes growing evidence that promoting and protecting adolescent health brings long-term benefits to economies and society.

However, it is incredibly important that children and adolescents do receive the professional help and support when they need it, rather than waiting months or even years for treatment.

STAFF from Changing Minds came in to talk with Newport County under 18s about mental health and wellbeing in the lead up to World Mental Health Day. In some countries, the day is celebrated as part of a mental health week.

Commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation (MHF), the YouGov survey also found that 27% said they got into fights or arguments, with the same number saying they did not want to be around others.

Here are some statistics that give you an idea of just how prevalent mental health conditions are among the Australian population. These outcomes do not correlate with the words of a Prime Minister who a year ago said she had "made it a priority of this government to tackle the injustice of mental illness".

The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day (WMHD) on 10 October every year as an opportunity to raise "awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health."This year's theme, set by the World Federation for Mental Health, is 'Young people and mental health in a changing world'". It was great to see so numerous profession in attendance with enthusiasm to change the status quo.

The report, launched at the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London, said people with mental illness still suffered "gross human rights violations" in many countries.

Workers in the United Kingdom are open to using a range of technologies - from online chatrooms, mobile apps and GP services to artificial intelligence and virtual reality - to help look after their mental health, according to results of a survey from Accenture.

While accountancy firms and businesses in general are introducing policies like flexible working and encouraging wellbeing to help combat stress at work, only 30 percent of managers have actually received any training around mental health.
