On World Mental Health Day, Emotional Deepika Padukone Says She's #NotAshamed

The Lancet report found that in many countries, people with common mental disorders such as depression, anxiety and schizophrenia routinely suffer gross human rights violations - including shackling, torture and imprisonment.

As the World marks Mental Health Day, non-profit organisation Cape Mental Health has stressed the importance of breaking down stereotypes. "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".

A new Canadian study finds that young refugees and immigrants may face barriers to accessing mental health services through primary care.

A new survey of adults in the Midlands conducted for PHE also shows almost three quarters (71%) of people in the Midlands report experiencing one or more of low mood, anxiety, stress and trouble sleeping, frequently or occasionally. The op-ed starts with Gaga and Dr. Adhanom discussing the alarmingly high suicide rate, which they cite as the second leading cause of death of people between ages 15 and 29 globally.

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. We can all learn how to offer support to loved ones going through a hard time.

World Mental Health Day is observed every year on October 10 and is dedicated towards mental health education, awareness and reducing the social stigma that surrounds this condition. People go for a physical health check-up regularly but mental health is always neglected.

Mental illness most of the times don't improve on their own and needs professional consultation. Harmful use of alcohol and illicit drugs among adolescents is a major issue in many countries and can lead to risky behaviours such as unsafe sex or 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. We have commenced the construction of primary health centres across the state to reach all Edo people and residents irrespective of where they reside.
