Lancet report: Mental health disorders on the rise in India

Indian national Bharat Vatwani one of the winners of this year's Magsaysay Awards- widely regarded as Asia's version of the Nobel prize- speaks during an interview ahead of the awards ceremony in Manila on Aug. 28 2018

Dr Wendy Fernander, president of the Bahamas Pharmaceutical Association, stressed the importance of having good mental health.

Yet average global spend on mental health is just 2.8 per cent of government health spending worldwide.

The strategy is being formally announced on Wednesday, World Mental Health Day, and Dr Jaques said that sport has already learned a lot from industry and other sectors about how to address problems before they get out of hand.

UK Sport's strategy will be led by a new head of medical health - an appointment is imminent - and they will be guided by a new mental health expert panel, which is expected to feature four psychiatrists and psychologists, all with experience of high-performance sport.

According to the Asian American Journal of Psychology, Asian Americans have lower rates of using any type of mental health-related services than the general population.

This week has been set aside as National Mental Illness Awareness Week. The barrier of silence needs to be broken by discussing mental health more openly and encouraging young people to express their thoughts and opinions.

Peng said she still remembered when she asked the audience to raise their hands if they were afraid of mental illnesses at a Chinese community event in the Bay Area three years ago, nearly everyone of the audience raised their hands.

Meanwhile, the benchmark Nikkei 225 Index fell 1.32 percent or 314.33 points to 23,469.39 points at the close. Overall, global growth will remain steady - about 3.7 percent this year - and exceed that of 2012-2016.

October 10 marks a day of education and recognition for those living with mental health issues and push for greater understanding and focus on the desperate need for adequate services.

And we will ensure that when people do want to talk, there is someone there to listen. In 2018, $93.4 million was donated to mental health initiatives and 87 per cent of Canadians say they're now more aware of mental health because of the Bell Let's Talk campaign.

Support networks are clearly crucial to improving a young person's mental health, but what role can schools play in supporting young people?

"Stigma is not the only reason why many Indians suffering from mental health disorders do not avail treatment".

That not only sends the wrong message about the importance of mental health but it also denies us vital data that can help transform the support we provide for generations to come. But both of us have seen how political leadership, funding, innovation and individual acts of bravery and compassion can change the world.

Issues such as homelessness, exposure to violence and perceived racism are some factors that can worsen the effects of mental health illness in African Americans. "Traditionally, we have looked at the physical benefits of being active, but this is one of the first analyses to really explore different qualities of physical activity when considering mental wellbeing, and it's shown that it deserves more attention", said Grant Robertson.
