'But we need to do more to challenge the stigma that people with mental ill-health face and make sure they feel they can reach out for help. "Yet despite the universality of the issue, we struggle to talk about it openly or to offer adequate care or resources".

Originally from Sheffield, she sparked a row previous year when she said many elderly people are "sitting in homes that really are too big for their needs" - and should not expect to pass them on to their children.

It's an annual occasion created by the World Federation for Mental Health, designed to get us all talking about the state of our mental health. There are not enough specialised hospitals or specialised psychiatric hospital beds for children and adolescents. "In the United Kingdom and Australia, peer-to-peer education programs encourage young people to support one another".

It also urged continuous training for primary healthcare workers to enable them detect and manage common mental health problems in community settings. Some 4,500 people take their lives every year in England.

Half of all mental illness begin by the age of 14 years, but most cases go undetected and untreated, with serious long-term consequences for mental health, it said.

Lady Gaga's new film A Star Is Born may be a music industry melodrama at its surface, but it's also a movie with a serious message about mental health and a pivotal character death by suicide. "But factors such as financial problems, stress, substance abuse and exam stress can also be factors".

Against this background, Wheeler said greater efforts must be made to "help young people build mental resilience".

As evidence in this country emerges - and the Chief Medical Officer is now looking at what we know and the impact of social media - we need to consider the links between health and technology for better, in many cases, but also for worse.
