The Importance of the 2018 World Mental Health Day

The Importance of the 2018 World Mental Health Day

The Gibraltar Mental Welfare Society will emphasise the need for both reflection and action locally as it marks World Mental Health Day on Wednesday. Our relationships are probably the most valuable things in our lives, so trying to maintain these bonds is very important and incredibly worthwhile. The vast majority of individuals suffering from poor mental health will show obvious signs, which are easy to spot in the workplace. It's now a legal requirement to have a medical first aider in most workplaces, but there's no provision for mental health first aiders in the same way, and we want this to change.

While men are more likely to take their own lives, women are more likely to suffer from a mental health condition.

"The process we're trying to develop and everything we're trying to do is just with an eye toward reducing stigma, increasing awareness and getting students access to more care", Cowley said.

Tackling mental health issues among youth can help them have a better and brighter future and also help them make the country prosperous.

TV presenter Anna Richardson and former Labour spin doctor and author Alastair Campbell feature in the campaign among others who have faced mental health difficulties.

He urged the Government to put in place deliberate interventions, with the support of national policy-makers and programme managers, to prioritise and advocate for funding to finance the mental needs of the country, with special emphasis on adolescents and young people. It may be reoccurring headaches, an upset stomach, or a rapid heart rate. Living with a mental health problem can make it hard to relax and switch off. Lack of sleep is another common side-effect.

Physical activity can help relieve stress as it relaxes the muscles and alleviates tension in the body. Physical activity can also be a great way to meet people and have fun.

"We know that the symptoms of mental health conditions and serious mental illnesses in particular tend to surface during the teen years and early 20s", Honberg said. By bringing together a team of providers - from licensed behavioral health clinicians to community health workers to pharmacists - we work one-on-one with members to coordinate medical and pharmacy care, while helping to coordinate additional social support services that impact our health such as food and housing assistance, medical transportation or utilities assistance.

According to Dr Bobomurod Keldiyorov, specialist family medicine, Canadian Specialist Hospital, the signs that parents and educators need to look out for in a children include withdrawal from social interactions, increase in challenging behaviour, change in sleeping and eating habits and sudden change in behaviour.
