Lady Gaga calls for more mental health awareness

Over 800,000 people commit suicide every year, US singer Lady Gaga and World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom wrote in an article for Mental Health Awareness Day.

One in six people every week experience a common mental health problem like anxiety or depression.

Over the past few years, we've seen an influx in people speaking, writing, and educating others about their own mental health issues.

The survey of office workers taken by workplace consultant Peldon Rose shows that the almost three-quarters of workers who want their employers to champion mental health and well-being rated this as more important than equality (48 per cent), sustainability (38 per cent) and diversity (31 per cent).

Today is a day like every other day where there are people around us suffering in silence.

The singer told Mind magazine: "I think talking openly about mental health is invaluable".

'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, ' he said.

The current shadow minister, Barbara Keeley, said: 'A focus on suicide prevention is long overdue given the appalling increase in suicide rates since 2010, particularly among young people, but it also needs proper funding of front line services.

By extension, this contributes to good mental health for all and the opportunity to change all our futures.

The move, meant to tackle the tragedy of 4,500 people taking their own lives in England each year, comes on World Mental Health Day. The announcement follows recommendations from junior lawyers that all firms should consider appointing mental health first aiders and wellbeing champions.

"Despite this, most of the people affected by mental, neurological and substance use disorders, many of them, 75 percent in low income countries, do not have access to the treatment that they need, " said Dr. Sands.

Most employees (72 per cent) want employers to champion the cause of mental health and well-being, according to a survey published today - World Mental Health Day. "And we can all be a part of a new movement - including people who have faced mental health illness themselves - to call on governments and industry to put mental health at the top of their agendas". We aim to tackle this by encouraging people to view as broken down into five themes of "Be Active", "Connect", "Take Notice", "Keep Learning" and "Give".
