Lady Gaga co-writes powerful essay for World Mental Health Day

Lady Gaga co-writes powerful essay for World Mental Health Day”

Different studies have also shown that mental health plagues people of every age, affects one out of five youths globally and is directly linked to youth suicide in the 15-29 age group.

United Kingdom journalist Hattie Gladwell initiated a Twitter thread with the hashtag detailing 'Things people have said about my mental illness.' The thread went viral, and exposed us to the kind of comments those suffering with mental illness had heard.

Originally from Sheffield, she sparked a row past year 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. We can prevent the tragedy of suicide taking too many lives. "We can all be a part of a new movement -- including people who have faced mental illness themselves -- to call on governments and industry to put mental health at the top of their agendas".

Theresa May named Jackie Doyle-Price to the newly created post as representatives of 50 countries gathered in London Wednesday for a mental health summit. "Mental health is just as vital to our wellbeing as physical health", Lady Gaga wrote on its site this time a year ago.

"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 my time as health minister I have met many people who have been bereaved by suicide and their stories of pain and loss will stay with me for a long time". They need all the support they can get.

Responding to the new Government funding announced today, Samaritans chief executive Ruth Sutherland said: "We welcome the Government's announcement of funding towards Samaritans' helpline, which will meet around 10 per cent of the total helpline costs for the next four years and help us to continue to provide our service free of charge".

As evidence in this country emerges - and the Chief Medical Officer is now looking at what we know and the impact of social media - we need to consider the links between health and technology for better, in many cases, but also for worse.

"This is an acknowledgement of the importance of our vital service".
