Lady Gaga mental health essay calls for funding and awareness

According to the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (Sadag), 9% of all teen deaths are due to suicide.

She says that young children, some as young as six-years-old, can also be affected by mental health issues.

It is believed that mental health issues start before 14 years of age and 75 percent of youth identify the problems before they reach 24 years.

On October 10 every year, the world observes the day to draw attention to the importance of mental health. "But factors such as financial problems, stress, substance abuse and exam stress can also be factors".

In similar vein, the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki in commemoration of the day in Benin decried the attitude of many societies towards people having mental health problems and called for a change.

Although African countries have been said to be making progress, much more can be done to build mental resilience from an early age to help prevent mental distress and illness among adolescents and young adults, and to manage recovery, the body said.

A combination of issues is usually the biggest contributors to mental health among young people, says Chambers.

"We have been hearing about more and more reports on student suicides, teens who have taken their own life".

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".

With the growing awareness about mental health, it's possible that you picked up on some warning signs.

According to the global agency, 10 to 20 per cent of children and adolescents worldwide suffer from mental disorders. "And despite how educated we are, there's pretty good evidence it's getting worse".

In a new op-ed for the Guardian published on Tuesday, Gaga, along with World Health Organization director general Tedros Adhanom, urged readers to confront the shame and stigma that keeps people from speaking out about mental health.
