#WorldMentalHealthDay: Are we doing enough to assist young people?

Feature When the unthinkable happens

What frightens The Chronicle most is the fact that most these cases go undetected and untreated, with serious long-term consequences for mental health, according to the Country Representative of the WHO, Dr Owen Kaluwa. "Yet for too long, mental health has been mostly an afterthought, despite its overwhelming impacts on communities and young people, everywhere". One in four people in the United Kingdom suffer from this illness and I really hope this campaign will continue to extend the conversation about how important good mental health is, and how urgently we need the government to pour money into mental health resources - the county's crying out for it.

"You have to be quite fearless to tackle something like this and raise it in a position of leadership where traditionally the stigma around mental health is [that it's] a weakness and could be potentially career limiting and if you talk you're going to get judged", he said.

Mental health issues can be crippling, emotionally draining, confusing and very frightening.

Dr Khalid Mufti said according to the WHO, mental health conditions account for 16 per cent of the global burden of disease and injury in people aged 10-19 years.

"World Mental Health Day is important in raising awareness and signposting people to the help and support that's available when people are in need".

"We need to make mental health much more of a priority, given that the need for this is so palpable". It's fantastic that as a result of the campaign more people are checking in on someone who they think may not be going so well.

Making employees feel valued is essential to creating an open environment where they are comfortable speaking up about their mental health.

South Africa's first and only mental health policy in 2013 advocated for a move to deinstitutionalisation, or a shift to provide mental healthcare outside of hospitals and closer to where patients live.
