World in mental health crisis of 'monumental suffering', say experts

Heather says, "Approximately one-half of chronic mental illness begins by the age of 14".

Anyone who has had thoughts of suicide or self-harm or know someone who is in crisis, or anyone who just need to talk to someone, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741-741.

Commenting on general mental health awareness, Love said: "While there is no definitive guide for mental health in the workplace, supporting your employees' well-being should remain a top-level consideration".

"Although it's not fully developed, there's widespread acceptance that overuse of these platforms can have a detrimental effect on children and young people".

Globally, "depression is one of the leading causes of illness and disability among adolescents" with suicide being the third leading cause of death in 15 to 19-year-olds, noted the WHO.

The support is there, everyone understands, the help is ready and waiting. We have a long way to go as a state in the way that we fund treatment. In an article published on The Guardian this week, the 32-year-old co-writes about the devastating number of people who take their own lives each year, and asks for global change in how mental health is viewed, treated and funded.

The move, meant to tackle the tragedy of 4,500 people taking their own lives in England each year, comes on World Mental Health Day.

Sure, it's a day that's part of a month that also strives to recognise the many conditions and illnesses that people are struggling with, but once the clock hits 12 tonight, the tweets of support, the infographics, and the Instagram Stories will, for the most part, stop. As the Director of Nursing with the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division, I see first hand the impact nurses have on people every day.

Being educated about the matter is not only empowering, but it can also bring about empathy for others, help lessen the falsities associated with mental illness and help those suffering from any mental challenges seek the help they need. "We invite all staff and family members to participate in the many activities created to promote greater understanding of ways we can support ourselves and each other in this important area".
