10 things to know about Aussies and mental health

Dr Khalid Mufti said the successive governments made promises and pledged to undertake efforts in the past without working solutions but only when youth-oriented mental health issues came to a limelight through the media.

It is important for the patients as well as for the people surrounding the sufferer, to understand that mental illness is a disease of the brain, just like pancreatitis or liver disease.

Aliveyogi.com director Lauren Verona said the studio was offering the free class, titled Mindful for Mental Health, to share the mental health benefits of the mindfulness practice.

Meanwhile, another mental health drive has also been launched, called Let's Talk and backed by Mental Health UK. Conversely, young people with mental illness may be exposed to higher levels of stigma than adults.

And all primary and secondary schools will be asked to regularly measure their pupils' mental well-being, as part of lessons in relationships, sex and health education. "We can not expect to save lives if people who need help are being turned away from specialist care", they wrote in the Sydney Morning Herald on Monday.

1 in 5 Australians experience a mental health condition in a given year.

The latest one comes from comedian Pete Davidson , who had to endure said rant during 'Ye's appearance on Saturday Night Live last week (Sept. 29).

"We need to make mental health much more of a priority, given that the need for this is so palpable". There are also rarer conditions like Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia, as well as eating disorders, that carry an even greater stigma. "Yet for too long, mental health has been mostly an afterthought, despite its overwhelming impacts on communities and young people, everywhere".

Jamie Matsell, General Manager at Xercise4Less Sheffield, said: "The physical benefits of exercise are well-known, but World Mental Health Day is the ideal opportunity to shine a light on the positive effects exercise has on our mental wellbeing".

Originally from Sheffield, she sparked a row a year ago when she said many elderly people are "sitting in homes that really are too big for their needs" - and should not expect to pass them on to their children. "We need their voices to shape their future in the right way, using their creativity and energy to make change".

"For employers, developing early intervention strategies is critical - this includes the provision of mental health first-aiders, providing adequate mental health training for managers, and resilience building for employees, amongst other things". 'Suicide is a leading cause of death in young people'. This conference will show where employers and employees can go to get advice and support.

In fact, there has been a rise in the time children have to wait before they are given treatment. Psychosocial support can be provided in schools and other community settings and training for health workers to enable them to detect and manage mental health disorders can be put in place, improved or expanded.

"Problems appear too big, too hard or embarrassing to overcome, and suicide may look like the only option", she said. We must focus, but not only on the pressing issues of suicide and serious mental illness.
