The World Federation for Mental Health created the day 24 years ago as a global platform for all nations to create awareness of mental health and issues associated with mental illness.

Peng said she still remembered when she asked the audience to raise their hands if they were afraid of mental illnesses at a Chinese community event in the Bay Area three years ago, nearly everyone of the audience raised their hands. Yet despite how widespread mental health issues are, many people can not find adequate mental healthcare.

"What we do know is that people are waiting far too long to get help".

For such a long time I have campaigned for mental health, having had a relationship with anti-depressants since my early teenage years. We need nurses who have what it takes to make a difference in the lives of Milwaukee County residents with mental health needs.

"The lack of resources to deal with this issue is another example of a false economy brought about austerity.

Raising awareness around mental health conditions reduces the stigma, and hopefully this will encourage people to talk more and realise that it really is OK not be to OK".

Awareness programmes on mental health and mental disorders marked the World Mental Health Day observance in Coimbatore on Wednesday. They're everything an employee might want to tell a manager (but if we're being honest, even edgier than anyone might reveal in the workplace.) To be clear, the point of this podcast is not to think of mental health as a joke or belittle people who are challenged by mental illness-it's to enlarge and deepen the conversation.

She will also say that "parity of care" is a priority of the NHS long-term plan, which will include "record investment" in mental health.

The move, meant to tackle the tragedy of 4,500 people taking their own lives in England each year, comes on World Mental Health Day.

Poor mental health during adolescence has an impact on educational achievement and increases the risk of alcohol and substance use and violent behavior, he said, adding that suicide is a leading cause of death in young people.

"We need to open up functional counselling centres in our institutions of learning and within the society generally".

On March 31 this year, a snapshot was taken of people detained under the Mental Health Act in the Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust.

Model, actress and mental health advocate Kylie Verzosa from the Philippines discusses her experiences with depression, her journey to recovery and the ideas that shaped the online community, Mental Health Matters.

"A big part of the process is to destigmatise mental health because that stigma affects our response both at the personal, family level, or at the societal level in how we deal with those persons who are mentally challenged", he said. "It was extremely tough and I felt like giving up the sessions at times but with the help of my family, friends and support at work, I did get through it and am back in work". "But together we can change that".
