Mental health crisis could cost the world $22 trillion by 2030

A mental health advocate in California, who has recently been awarded by the State Senate, said on Wednesday that her priority now is to help raise the awareness of mental illnesses among young Chinese Americans.

The report, launched at the first-ever Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London, was compiled by experts in psychiatry, public health, neuroscience, and advocacy, as well as people with lived experience of mental health conditions.

Sam was sports-mad but his mental health spiralled after he fractured his back at fifteen, he was told a year later that he could never play sports again.

For we are not looking after our health if we are not looking after our mental health.

This year's World Mental Health day, which is today, focuses on the 40% of the global population who are between 10 and 24 years old.

There are a lot of talks on championing good mental health, but one of the most powerful statements was from the American singer-songwriter, Lady Gaga.

Dr Sands suggested mental illness greatly increases the risk of contracting other serious medical conditions such as HIV, diabetes, and heart disease.

Jane Ashby leader of the Doncaster School Nurses team, said "Quite often families are hard for young people, so just having someone they can talk to that's not necessarily a parent but somebody they can just talk freely to is kind of what our role is".

"It is positive that mental health is being publicly talked about and I am confident that we are moving in the right direction which will ultimately benefit every athlete, coach and support staff member working in Olympic and Paralympic sport". "The time has come for us all, collectively, to tackle the causes and symptoms of mental illness, and provide care for those who suffer from it".

So it's critical that we not only deliver parity of care between mental and physical health - but that we do the same for prevention too. The first and foremost step that a country like ours must take is to address the subject of mental health simultaneously generating awareness and defeat the stigma attached to mental health.

According to the authors, the time is now to change the perceptions surrounding mental health issues and to better the way we care for those dealing with them in the process. We can prevent the tragedy of suicide taking too many lives.

The Yorkshire Post says: Cry for help from young.
