Youth vulnerable to mental stress, illnesses, says expert

BE WELL Join the mindfulness movement for free

Marking Mental Health Day on Wednesday, the UN World Health Organisation (WHO) is focusing on the psychological well-being of young people aged 10 to 14, to stave off conditions that can impact their lives deep into adulthood.

Expert support: Let's provide independent counsellors in every school to help give pupils the timely support they need.

"I think it's really important that we get these opportunities to get people to come in to speak about it".

He said the burden of mental illness had risen "dramatically" worldwide in the past 25 years, partly due to societies ageing and more children surviving into adolescence, yet "no country is investing enough" to tackle the problem.

Stress is the most common response, with over half (55%) experiencing this frequently or occasionally, compared to 54% for sleeplessness, 47% for low mood, and 41% for anxiety.

Mr Ellwood, a former soldier, also said he would support the The Scotsman investigation to get "veteran" noted on the death certificates of former service men and women who took their own lives, along with measures to identify and treat mental health issues during and after service.

And this week sports organisations and youth groups will also spend some time with each of their teams or groups before or after training or meeting to discuss mental health.

"He has been very clear that this is what worked for him and not necessarily that it will work for everyone; life with a mental illness looks very different for different people", she says.

The WHO said there needs to be greater recognition of the risks along with support for young people.

"The Commission calls out the shameful and shocking treatment of people with mental ill health around the world", said Dr Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet.

International Monetary Fund cuts global growth forecasts
The S&P 500 index edged 0.1 percent lower to 2,884.43, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.2 percent to 26,486.78. USA stimulus also adds to the "already-unsustainable" debt and deficit that will undercut future growth, the report warns.

"Historically, everywhere in the world, it would seem, mental health has always been underfunded".

The PM has also pledged up to £1.8 million to ensure the Samaritans' helpline remains free for the next four years, to help those most in need. Mental health like physical health embodies a healthy lifestyle.

"Central to this campaign is the concept of empowerment".

Foresight the United Kingdom government's future think-tank commissioned experts across different fields to review what was known about mental health and wellbeing.

"Mental health affects everyone, either directly or through our relatives and close friends".

It is being promoted to adults across the Midlands, and is being supported by a range of public sector, charity, and commercial partners.

It explained that in the last few years, attitudes to mental health have started to change. A powerful human ripple effect occurs which means we are better able to serve our broader network.

A minister for suicide prevention has been appointed in England by the prime minister as the government hosts the first ever global mental health summit.

"We hope it benefits many people and goes one step towards ending the stigma around mental illness. World Mental Health Day is a timely reminder to raise awareness and initiate conversations to improve mental wellbeing in the communities we serve".
