#WorldMentalHealthDay: Raising awareness on mental health issues globally

Well, most of us don't even know that they are going through any sort of mental illness, simply because we or people around us are not aware of the signs and symptoms.

Professor Vikram Patel, one of the Commission's editors, said that mental health "is the foundation of human capability that makes each life worthwhile and meaningful". One such discussion was held on Twitter earlier this year during May, which is considered as Mental Health Month.

This plea was made on Wednesday at the commemoration of the World Mental Health Day.

Chance, who recently pledged $1 million to mental health resources in his hometown of Chicago, wrote on Twitter that friends and family members need to realize that their expectations are unlikely to match the progress of their loved ones that are dealing with mental illness.

A new survey of adults in the Midlands conducted for PHE also shows almost three quarters (71%) of people in the Midlands report experiencing one or more of low mood, anxiety, stress and trouble sleeping, frequently or occasionally. Stigma and misconceptions are also a serious threat for people suffering from mental illness.

WHO, in its recommendations, called for the integration of mental health into primary healthcare.

The CMD explained that stress and apprehension which are not properly managed most often lead to mental illness, adding that the use of online technologies, despite many benefits could also bring about additional pressures. "Parents and teachers can help build life skills of children and adolescents to help them cope with everyday challenges at home and at school".

Chance's tweet drew praise from others on Twitter, with many expressing thanks for his empathy. The theme for this year is 'Young people and mental health in a changing world, ' while in 2017 it was 'Mental health in the workplace'.

Looking to the future, the pair calls upon readers and national governments to put more funding into mental health support, before highlighting a collection of research on how to promote and protect mental health and treat mental illness, which will also be published this week in the The Lancet medical journal.

"The Benin Specialist Hospital will be open to offer specialist care to patients before the end of the year and we have received letters of intent from experts in the health sector, who want to partner with us to ensure that our health system can meet the needs of our people", he added.
