WHO tasks African leaders on mental health care

Thomas Sanderson has donated 3,000 to the Rowans Hospice. Members of the firm's charity committee handed the cheque over to Gemma Carden and Verity James from the Rowans

NAN reports that World Mental Health Day is observed on October 10 every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health. "Ending the Silence" helps middle and high school students understand mental illness and mental health issues, teaches common warning signs and when and where young people can get help for themselves and for their friends".

Chance the Rapper offered some words of advice and compassion about mental illness Wednesday, which was designated as World Mental Health Day by the World Federation for Mental Health. He further said that the psychiatrists in government cadre are available in each district hospital of State and soon, more psychiatrists would be recruited to provide mental health services at rural area of the State.

The school environment has a significant impact on a young person's emotional welfare. If you have the resources to donate to cause that supports mental illness, do that.

47 percent of people aged between 18 and 24 said that financial difficulties and money worries contributed to their poor mental health during the country's financial crisis. It also said that the country lacks a community based mental health service centre. Eating disorders are also of concern. To do this, we need to re-balance the curriculum by giving health and wellbeing the same importance as literacy and numeracy, and creating mentally healthy schools where pupils and teachers can thrive.

Data on the National Alliance on Mental Illness shows that 50 percent of chronic mental illnesses starts by age fourteen. This blog originally appeared on the foundation's website.

Gabriel Jesus unhappy at Pep Guardiola penalty call in draw at Liverpool
Liverpool, in the end, will probably feel it got away with it, but in the long run the point is probably of more value to City. Heading into the global break, City, Liverpool and Chelsea are all on 20 points, with Arsenal and Tottenham two adrift.

"In too many places support services are non-existent and those with treatable conditions are criminalized - literally chained up in inhumane conditions, cut off from the rest of society without hope", the writers said.

A fifth (21%) of respondents admitted they are more likely to go into work when feeling unwell from a mental health problem rather than a physical illness, while 15% stated that their boss and colleagues would not take them seriously if they took time off for a mental health issue, up from 12% in 2016.

Mental health conditions have resulted in 17.6 million sick days in the past year. Back then I would have thought a World Mental Health Day was wonderful, and the fact that I'll be talking about it on the radio would have been overwhelming.

The programme will include a series of educational awareness presentations and displays, social media discussion sessions, mental health-themed drawing and photography competitions for staff and their families, as well as a special health and wellness VIP event on the day itself. As the United Nations panel recognised, ensuring good mental health goes some way towards reducing the burden of NCDs and therefore improving public health overall. But both of us have seen how political leadership, funding, innovation and individual acts of bravery and compassion can change the world.
