Theresa May pledges new funding to mark World Mental Health Day

President Buhari receives compendium

In some countries, people with mental disorders are abused and incarcerated, it says.

"In my time as health minister I have met many people who have been bereaved bysuicide and their stories of pain and loss will stay with me for a long time. It is time to do the same for mental health". These tragic deaths raised awareness of those who silently suffer from mental health issues, including depression, and underscored the enormous problem at hand in providing mental healthcare for everyone who needs it.

The economic and social cost of mental health problems in the United Kingdom amounts to more than £100bn every year.

Now we must turn those words into action.

I urge you, or remind you, to check out the resources below if you need help. Thirdly young people's wellbeing is dependent on their support networks so these should be considered in mental health treatment research.

"Previously, there has been very little work done on physical activity from a mental health perspective".

She said it may take several generations of effort to work on the prejudice and stigma attached to mental illnesses, but it's important to "move towards the right direction". Young people living in situations such as these are particularly vulnerable to mental distress and illness.

I don't think high-performance sport will ever feel cosy or comfortable - it will always be tough and hard and there will be high pressure.

And we can not stand by and allow this injustice to continue.

He added: "Every suicide is a preventable death and we are determined to do everything we can to tackle the tragedy of suicide".

For this to happen we need to give suicide prevention the priority it deserves.

Today (Wednesday, October 10) is World Mental Health Day, but there is still a stigma associated with mental health conditions according to the Peterborough Labour Party (PLP).

The PM promoted junior health minister Jackie Doyle-Price and pledged £1.8million to fund The Samaritans helpline for four years.

As part of the government's plans, every local area will be asked to put an effective suicide prevention plan in place, and look at how the latest technology can be used to identify those most at risk. In Australia, about 75% of suicides are committed by men. "What can we do?" which is a click-worthy headline to be sure, but also a thought provoking one.

"In some cases, if not recognized and managed, these feelings lead to mental illness", said the Minister.

Investment by governments and the involvement of the social, health and education sectors in comprehensive, integrated, evidence-based programmes for the mental health of young people is essential.

There are degrees to the magnitude and type of mental illnesses.

Commenting on general mental health awareness, Love said: "While there is no definitive guide for mental health in the workplace, supporting your employees' well-being should remain a top-level consideration".

Recruitment has just begun for the first cohort of trainees.

In light of this, Seymour stressed the importance of ensuring that island's young people are reminded that they have unconditional love and plenty of encouragement. "They could also promote mental health support services such as EAPs or counselling and use great events such as World Mental Health day to communicate positive mental health messages".

So we are going to change this.

The theme of the day for this year is "young people and mental health in a changing world". But both of us have seen how political leadership, funding, innovation and individual acts of bravery and compassion can change the world.

So let's do that.

The support is there, everyone understands, the help is ready and waiting.
