New mental health fund launched

New mental health fund launched”

In fact, MIND found that four in five people with mental health problems have lived in housing that has made their mental health worse.

Sister Amber says campaigns like this and Mental Health Awareness Week are vital to help people cope. Mental ill-health is one of the biggest public health challenges facing society. "Only by challenging any potential stigma and increasing awareness around mental health at work can we start to break the silence and start to build more open and inclusive workplaces".

The Behavioral Health Center of Nueces County (BHCNC) is the Local Mental Health Authority, providing services and support to individuals living with mental illness. We believe mental and physical health are of equal importance, which is why we set ourselves a target to match the number of mental and physical first aiders in our organisation. That's why it is not only important to think about what we can do to take care of our own mental health, it is also important to be open to talking about the subject with others and learning to spot the signs when someone might need a bit of help.

When we're being creative, our brains release dopamine, a natural anti-depressant.

The month also focuses on strategies for attaining mental health and wellness, as well as reducing the stigma that surrounds mental illness.

A strong workforce is at the centre of our plans so we are investing to provide 800 additional mental health workers in key locations such as A&E departments, GP practices, police stations and prisons.

In the minute-message, the Duke of Cambridge said: "Just starting a conversation on mental health can make all the difference, when you talk about something you have less reason to fear it".

"Bank of Scotland Foundation's new fund is a great example of one of Scotland's prominent funders showing their commitment to helping improve mental health and access to support". This poignant moment of reflection, a first in United Kingdom radio, is a wonderful opportunity to help us improve how we support each other emotionally. While among the 20.2 million adults in the US who have experienced a substance use disorder, about 50.5%-10.2 million adults-had a co-occurring mental illness. So if you, or someone you know, feel that talking could help with any worries you have about mental health, these numbers might be useful.
