Lady Gaga Co-Writes Op-Ed on Suicide and the Stigma of Mental Illness
While there has been some progress, the authors urge governments to do more, writing that "mental health now receives less than 1 per cent of global aid".
"Mental health is just as vital to our wellbeing as physical health", Lady Gagawrote on its site this time previous year. "She also talked about battling depression in a video posted on YouTube by the Live Love Laugh Foundation (LLLF), in which she said, 'Waking up was tough because I didn't want to face the day". "It is important that people look after their mental health". D, LCSW from The Cohen Veterans Network and Linda Rosenberg, MSW from the National Council for Behavioral Health join us to shine a light on this growing issue and how to reduce it by eliminating the social stigma of mental illness.
Present estimates show people with mental illnesses account for almost 6.5% of India's population and is projected to increase to 20% by2020. The theme for this year is "Young people and mental health in a changing world".
Manager of the Mental Health Unit at the Ministry of Health Ashvini Nath said the ministry is happy to collaborate with CreateBetterMinds. The Professional Board's commemorations will include an awareness campaign to the South African public on mental health issues. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds. "Parents and teachers can help build life skills of children and adolescents to help them cope with everyday challenges at home and at school".
The harmful use of alcohol and illicit drugs among adolescents were also identified as contributing to risky behaviours such as violence, unsafe sex and dangerous driving.
Looking to the future, the pair calls upon readers and national governments to put more funding into mental health support, before highlighting a collection of research on how to promote and protect mental health and treat mental illness, which will also be published this week in the The Lancet medical journal.
"The hope is to get people excited about taking care of their mental health and themselves overall".
Having good mental health can help us feel and function better, have more positive relationships with those around us, and deal with and manage hard times now and into the future.
