United Kingdom companies can't afford to ignore mental health issues

Financial services jobs 44 percent more likely than average to cause stress-related mental illness

"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".

There is both a crisis in services available for children and young people when they experience difficulties with their mental health and a growing understanding that the bulk of the mental health difficulties that adults experience have their onset before the age of 14.

This year's event will be crowned with a public lecture on mental health at the Ebenezer Presbyterian Church Hall at Osu in Accra. 7% said they had been physically attacked by colleagues or customers in the past year, rising to 13% of blue-collar workers, 15% of BAME people, one in five (20%) non-binary people and almost a third (30%) of senior leaders.

Divulging more about the mental health care, Mr. Brahm Mohindra said that there is a tendency of experimentation in young age group leading to indulgence in alcohol and illicit drug abuse which may lead to the mental health issues among youth. It also said that the country lacks a community based mental health service centre.

Kim Jong-un Has a New Rolls-Royce
Seoul's Unification Ministry said Tuesday the water being supplied to the office has been provided to the town's residents as well.

She said stakeholders were awaiting the establishment of the Mental Health Fund to ensure sustainable funding for mental health treatment.

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.
