For too many, lack of first-hand knowledge about mental illness coupled with inadequate support in coping with it is overwhelming.

He was delivering a lecture at the Ibadat Hospital on Tuesday in connection with the World Mental Health Day which is marked on October 10.

Mental health tops the agenda this week as members of the Association's CEO Roundtable gather on October 10th, World Mental Health Day, to discuss specific strategies to accelerate evidence-based workplace health programs to improve employee health and well-being and the health of their communities. Even as most expatriates call the UAE their second home, not many have a healthy social network that can help unwind.

A popular misconception is that mental illness is caused by poor parenting, deficient character, traumatic events, stresses, or lifestyle choices.

Just as physical health can change over time so can our mental health.

Its 'Do You See What I See?' campaign challenges perceptions about mental illness in Australia and encourages everyone to look at mental health in a more positive light, in an effort to reduce stigma and make way for more people to seek the help and support they deserve. In terms of the burden of the disease among adolescents, depression is the third leading cause. Harmful use of alcohol and illicit drugs among adolescents is a major issue in many countries and can lead to risky behaviours such as unsafe sex or dangerous driving. "Research shows there is a fourfold return on investment for every dollar spent on treating depression and anxiety, the most common mental health conditions, making spending on the issue a great investment for both political leaders and employers, in addition to generating savings in the health sector". "We work in a young dynamic, fast and sometimes very challenging industry, so it's never been more important for our people to pause and take a day for themselves, to work on their own mental health", says Spark Foundry CEO Sue Squillace.

Campaigner Natasha Devon said the mental health first aiders would be trained in what to say and "crucially what not to say to someone who is struggling". Brown on Sep. 30, health insurers must also develop treatment programs for maternal mental health issues and guidelines for obstetricians on what to do when a woman screens positive for a postpartum mood disorder. He explained his point by referring to the suicides in Chitral mainly by teenage girls by jumping into the river.

Staged to coincide with World Mental Health Day, tomorrow (Wednesday), the Mental Health in the Workplace conference takes place at County Hall in Maidstone.

"I was there along with my team that included clinical psychologist Khaisa Noreen Muhammad Bashir, social worker Shaista Razaq and other local volunteers".

Officials said teachers would be expected to help young pupils to cope with modern pressures, while schools would be offered tools to help them assess pupil wellbeing. "The intra-family relations were found to be at the low-level of attachment that in turn is affecting the mood of the people of Chitral who are otherwise known as soft-spoken and tolerant".
