  • Lady Gaga calls for more mental health awareness

According to a new report by World Health Organization, suicide is the second leading cause of death globally for young people aged between 15 and 19. The approach to the mental health must cover the full spectrum which is from day today wellness to many disabling conditions.

According to World Health Organization, a lot of these cases go undetected and therefore untreated, meaning that they're likely to get worse as a person gets older. You control you, and sometimes you need help finding that inner control again and that is more important than any drug.

Mark Rowland is chief executive of the Mental Health Foundation.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists said that while reasons for the rise were complex, one factor is that people are waiting too long to receive help for mental illnesses.

Just as the resilience and resourcefulness of young people is often unbelievable, what is equally awesome are the levels of distress we as a society expect children and young people (and their families) to tolerate.

Mental disorders are estimated to cost the global community almost $2.5 trillion each year - and those costs are increasing.

"Because some of the topics that the theme covers; suicide, bullying, trauma and gender identity, we chose to focus on high school students, because these are issues that are affecting our youth and they are being downplayed in a lot of instances because youth are not given a voice to express themselves", she said.

South Africa finance minister quits over links to Gupta family
Malema had threatened on Sunday that streets protests might be organised to demand for the removal of Nene as finance minister. The President appointed a respected former governor of South Africa's central bank, Tito Mboweni, as the new finance minister.

The theme of the Day is, "the Youth and Mental Health in a changing World".

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

Recent data from the Ghana Health Service has revealed that about 41 percent of Ghanaians have some form of psychological illness. Despite their success, they were wrecked by depression because just like us, they are also normal individuals.

"Adolescence and young adulthood are a time of life when we experience many changes very close together". The answer to increasing well being and mental health will come not only from policy change in the house of commons, not only in the curriculum at school or college, but in the way we all relate to each other, the way we interact and support each other. "If you have children knowing what those signs are". She says, "We are working to replace the stigma of mental illness with hope and support and to advocate for care for those who need it".

Barbara Keeley, mental health spokeswoman for the opposition Labour Party, told the Press Association: "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".

Smartphones, tablets and laptops can overstimulate our brains, and if you never take any time out from them, you will not be doing your mental health any favour.
