United Kingdom companies can't afford to ignore mental health issues

President Buhari receives compendium President Buhari receives compendium

Two articles have already appeared on the site, one talking about where men can turn for help and the other detailing Hit Network's drive show host, Dave Hughes and his struggle with mental health.

And we have to change this. After making headlines from her movie, "A Star is Born", Gaga together with World Health Organization director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, wrote an inspiring Op-Ed to address urgency in suicides and mental health crisis. The objective of the week is to replace the stigma of mental illness with hope and support, and to advocate for care for those who need it.

That is why we were so pleased this week to host the first ever Global Ministerial Summit on mental health.

At least 177 countries were featured in a report from WHO earlier this year which charted the progressive implementation of its 2013 global action plan on mental health.

Recent data from the Ghana Health Service has revealed that about 41 percent of Ghanaians have some form of psychological illness.

"Previously, there has been very little work done on physical activity from a mental health perspective".

NHS England was criticised for having no checks in place to ensure that the extra money was channelled into better mental health support for young people, despite it being widely accepted that demand for services was not being met. Engage with stressed employees before they reach the stage where they need to take long term absence.

Jay Ajayi: Eagles should have run more vs. Vikes
Bennett's 9-yard sack was wiped out by a personal foul call, and the half-the-distance penalty placed the ball on the Eagles' 11. Wentz picked up 15 rushing yards, while also completing 68 percent of his passes for 311 yards and two touchdowns.

"It is positive that mental health is being publicly talked about and I am confident that we are moving in the right direction which will ultimately benefit every athlete, coach and support staff member working in Olympic and Paralympic sport". In 2018, $93.4 million was donated to mental health initiatives and 87 per cent of Canadians say they're now more aware of mental health because of the Bell Let's Talk campaign. Which makes sense considering over half of mental illnesses start developing when a person in in their teens - by the age of 14, to be exact. We can not afford to wait five years, which feels like a lifetime to a young child.

He added: "Every suicide is a preventable death and we are determined to do everything we can to tackle the tragedy of suicide".

But if things are really going to change, if people are going to feel comfortable to get the help they need, and services are going to become accessible to everybody no matter what wage they're on, the recognition needs to continue all throughout the year - not just today.

For this to happen we need to give suicide prevention the priority it deserves.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has appointed what is thought to be the world's first minister for suicide prevention.

"I am delighted we are appointing Jackie Doyle-Price as our dedicated Minister forSuicide Prevention, and I know she will make a real difference".
