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.

Obaseki explained that people with mental health problems deserve our love, care, understanding and support and urged thought and opinion leaders in communities across the globe to lead the fight against exclusion, stigma and prejudices held against sufferers of mental illnesses. "This attitude further compounds efforts by governments, experts and other stakeholders at designing products for the treatment of patients and reintegrating them into the society", he said.

"All of these issues are affected by hereditary and biological factors but environmental and psychological influences play a big role as well", added Aamnah.

"These children being raised by nannies or housemaids are left to entertain themselves with television and smartphones/tablets resulting in a lack of socially stimulating environment", he said. They can also be times of stress and apprehension however. These issues are particularly relevant to those on Medicaid, the public health insurance program for low-income Americans and the largest source of health coverage in the nation. Such children develop a strong need to remain connected to the phone or playing games, said the doctor.

"Mental wellness is extremely important to overall wellbeing".

"I am delighted we are appointing Jackie Doyle-Price as our dedicated Minister for Suicide Prevention, and I know she will make a real difference".

Every year around 6,000 people take their own life by suicide across the United Kingdom and Ireland.
