1 out of 4 Nigerians may develop mental illness ― Adebowale

The theme for this year, "Young people and mental health in a changing world", saw the organisers taking a fun approach to presenting information, and booths such as that of the Office of the Prime Minister included information on a parent skills training programme.

Gaga and Adhanom mentioned some of the high-profile celebrities who've died by suicide over the past year, including celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain and designer Kate Spade.

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.

The Every Mind Matters guide also offers support for social anxiety, trauma, obsessions and compulsions or panic attacks and provides information for people wishing to help friends, family and colleagues experiencing mental health problems. They point out that mental health issues garner just 1% of global aide despite costing "the world $2.5tn a year, a figure that is expected to balloon to $6tn by 2030 unless we take action".

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".

A Sadag study shows one out of four employees suffers from a mental health disorder.

Rare illness strikes down U.S. kids
It's so rare that less than one in a million will get AFM, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention . CDC has tested many different specimens from AFM patients for a wide range of pathogens (germs) that can cause AFM.

Adebowale said: "Prevention begins with being aware of and understanding the early warning signs and symptoms of mental illness".

Today [October 10] marks World Mental Health Day, and the report notes that young people bear "the brunt of the burden of mental ill health".

"For over a decade, we have had doctors who are consultants in sport and exercise medicine looking after our elite athletes", he added.

"Children and adolescents with mental disorders often face stigma and limited access to health care and education, in violation of their human rights and such needs to change", the agency said. In 2015, I shared my story.

Hancock added: "Every suicide is a preventable death and we are determined to do everything we can to tackle the tragedy of suicide". They need all the support they can get.

"Samaritans' 20,000 volunteers are available at any time for anyone who is struggling to cope".
