Providing support can help save lives”

Health minister Jackie Doyle-Price will lead the national effort and try to end the stigma which stops people from seeking help, Theresa May announced, as she marks World Mental Health Day today.

I'm not a mental health expert by any stretch of the imagination, but with one in five solicitors likely to be affected by a mental health issue at some point during their careers it's an issue that should be taken very seriously.

It follows on from Mental Health Awareness Week in May and the World Health Organisation (WHO) has revealed its objective for this year's event is to primarily focus on youths and those in the early years of adulthood. The unfortunate development is a catalyst for mental illness, according to the Psychiatrist. In this age group, bodily changes, hormonal changes, changing social standing and a maturing mind contribute to complex challenges when it comes to mental health parameters.

Mental disorders are on the rise in every country in the world and will cost the global economy $16 trillion by 2030.

I think one of the issues that powers the stigma surrounding mental health is a lack of confidence or awareness of how to start a conversation on the topic. However, for many, they can be a source of stress and anxiety.

"Mental health is the foundation of human capability that makes each life worthwhile and meaningful".

The benefits of fresh air and exercise can not be overlooked. Only 17 percent of respondents believe their employer is supportive of those having financial difficulties. The country also ranks highly for anxiety with 4.1 per cent of people admitting to a problem.

The signs of stress and depression in a young person aren't much different from those in an adult.

For many people, speaking up about mental health problems at work can be incredibly daunting.

"Small business would not survive if not for the help we get from one another", Faulkner says. That doesn't just mean offering counselling, tackling the problem calls for a more wide ranging response. This innovative service provides the convenience of quick booking and flexible working times, plus it's completely confidential.
