World Mental Health Day is organised by the World Health organisation and aims to raise awareness around mental health issues.

The findings were revealed as St John Ambulance announced it would host its first national summit on mental health best practice in the workplace this December - just over a year since it began working with Mental Health First Aid England to train people in this area.

Mental illness is the leading cause of both disability and premature death in Australia.


Mental illness costs society almost $200 billion annually, often striking young adults who, as wage earners, would otherwise contribute to the economy and to their own welfare. Minorities tend to have less access to and availability of mental health services, and according to the National Association of Mental Illness, African-Americans and Hispanic Americans used mental health services at about half the rate of whites in the past year.

"Most people with depression are not suicidal, but most suicidal people are depressed, hence the importance of knowing the symptoms of depression", she said.

"This suggests a large proportion of teenagers are suffering from mental and emotional health problems". "Let us be more accepting of those with mental health challenges including our young people who continue to face many challenges in their daily lives". "We hope all employers will join us to promote mental health". According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, in 2015, Medicaid covered 21 percent of adults with mental illness, 26 percent of adults with serious mental illness and 17 percent of adults with substance use disorder. "We want young people and people of every age to speak up when they have mental health issues".

"When we get this right, our people go from functioning to flourishing, which means that everyone inside Xero is set up to play to their strengths and do their best work". Society has always conditioned us to believe that mental health issues are a stigma and that they can't be spoken about.


And all primary and secondary schools will be asked to regularly measure their pupils' mental well-being, as part of lessons in relationships, sex and health education.

Janice Horsman, CEO of Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster Mind will discuss the charity, and good mental health can help you thrive at work. Spending time with them, increased communication helps.

Depression is a serious concern among youth and suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds. Just as it is okay to fall sick, we may suffer from mental health issues.

"The quality of mental health services is routinely worse than the quality of those for physical health", says their report, launched at a global ministerial mental health summit in London.
