World Mental Health Day observed

"In fact, I have never come across such a focus on mental health awareness in a prep school before".

Sure, it's a day that's part of a month that also strives to recognise the many conditions and illnesses that people are struggling with, but once the clock hits 12 tonight, the tweets of support, the infographics, and the Instagram Stories will, for the most part, stop.

Today's World Mental Health Day, as if I needed another reason to write or talk about the challenges we face as a society and as a state addressing mental health care.

Bexar County also has a Department of Behavioral and Mental Health that advocates for community health issues and programs.

"I realise that mental health is just as important as physical health".

Present estimates show people with mental illnesses account for almost 6.5% of India's population and is projected to increase to 20% by2020.

World Mental Health Day observed

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.

However Dr Karthik K.N., a consultant psychiatrist at Sagar Hospitals, pointed out that the assumption that mental health disorders are more common in women is not entirely true. Psychosocial support can be provided in schools and other community settings and, of course, training for health workers to enable them to detect and manage mental health disorders can be put in place, improved or expanded. "In some cases, if not recognised and managed, these feelings can lead to mental illness". "I don't remember people talking about anxiety; I don't remember, when I was growing up, that really being a thing". Suicide doesn't just affect the individuals taking their own lives but also that of their friends and families and those closest to them. No wonder mental health schemes and mental healthcare are not so advanced in India, as in the Western world.

The goal of the conference was to develop programmes to meet the needs of the Bahamian youth suffering from mental health issues and to remove the negative stigma towards mental illness.

She says, although today most people understand that mental illness is a medical condition, still the stigma stops people from seeking medical help. The WHO has provided recommendations and examples of activities that can help detect and treat such disorders early. "We can all learn how to offer support to loved ones going through a hard time. we can all be a part of a new movement - including people who have faced mental illness themselves - to call on governments and industry to put mental health at the top of their agendas".

Lady Gaga and Adhanom closed by saying, "The two of us have taken different paths in life. It is time to do the same for mental health".
