"Mental health services, particularly for young people, are reporting an increased number of admissions linked to use of social media and some companies themselves are starting to recognise this".

"Mental health services are still being underfunded by the Conservative government, with one in 10 CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Groups) failing to meet the mental health investment standard in the past year - that is leading to adults having to wait as many as four months for treatment in certain areas, while one in four children are being rejected for treatment after referral".

The minister pointed out that the destigmatisations of mental illness would go a far way in creating a better, more caring Jamaica. Construction is a great industry to work in and has so many exciting opportunities, but it is also a tough industry that can be extremely stressful.

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

By tackling mental health stigma and helping people understand that mental health belongs to everybody, employers will see productivity, staff retention, and sickness rates improve - it is an issue that businesses can't afford to ignore.

In early July, CNN reported that New York State and Virginia were the first two states in the country that enacted laws to require K-12 schools to teach mental health education.

Celebrities around the globe have united, opening up about their personal struggles with mental illness like severe anxiety or, as in Lady Gaga's case, crippling depression. We can not afford to wait five years, which feels like a lifetime to a young child.
