Women more prone to mental disorders: Doctors

Women more prone to mental disorders: Doctors

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 mobilizing efforts in support of mental health.

"I feel Chinese people now are more open to talking about mental illnesses, which is progress", said Peng.

However, Dr Kaluwa said most cases went undetected and untreated, with serious long-term consequences for mental health.

Responding to the new post, Hancock said the United Kingdom is "already making progress when it comes to suicide prevention" as the "suicide rate is at its lowest for seven years", but "we need to do more to challenge the stigma that people with mental ill-health face and make sure they feel they can reach out for help".

Mental health refers to an array of activities directly or indirectly related to the mental well-being component included in the World Health Organisation's (WHO) definition of health: "a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease".

U.S. Politician Bernie Sanders echoed these sentiments from his personal Twitter account, writing, "As a nation (the U.S) must fix our broken healthcare system and give mental behavioral healthcare the attention and resources they deserve".

"Fortunately, there is a growing recognition of the importance of helping young people build mental resilience, from the earliest ages, in order to cope with the challenges of today's world".

"Foolish Optimism" follows three young people with mental health problems, living across Scotland, and its premier coincided with World Mental Health Day on Wednesday.

"For the past year, I have been making art about mental health and about how I was feeling".

This year's event will be crowned with a public lecture on mental health at the Ebenezer Presbyterian Church Hall at Osu in Accra. "The challenges are to help people understand that it is an illness and there are medicines and treatment available". "Most women are not victims of mental illness as they have an inherent capacity to handle stress more than men".

"The doctors are trained to recognise mental health issues and are assisted by EIS sports psychologists and performance lifestyle advisers".

The focus of this year's WMHD is on young people. But both of us have seen how political leadership, funding, innovation and individual acts of bravery and compassion can change the world.

Spending on children and young people's mental health, as a proportion of the overall mental health spend, is very low indeed, and we can not expect to meet all the need that there is when services are constantly challenged by austerity, making it harder and harder for children and young people to access help.
