Event highlights mental health issues

Lynette PayneOct 12, 2018

It would also be unfair to suggest that this day of recognition doesn't help people, because it does.

THE Bahamas Pharmaceutical Association yesterday held a symposium highlighting World Mental Health Day and promoting awareness of mental health issues.

"The whole school joined together to support World Mental Health Day and the explosion of yellow was spectacular".

Mental Health Week will climax on October 13 with a 20/20 cricket match at the Police Recreation Grounds from 9 a.m. Take This doesn't just raise awareness about mental illness in gaming, it gives gamers the tools they need to understand what they're going through and seek help right away.

The figure, from a survey of 1,001 United Kingdom employees carried out in August 2018, shows a rise in mental health presenteeism by 4% since 2016. 7% said they had been physically attacked by colleagues or customers in the a year ago, rising to 13% of blue-collar workers, 15% of BAME people, one in five (20%) non-binary people and almost a third (30%) of senior leaders.

Jacqueline said: "I think everyone has been touched by mental health problems in some kind of way - there's probably people still that don't know how to speak up about it or what is happening to them". "So we can get them the support system they need", she said.

A new survey of adults in the Midlands conducted for PHE also shows almost three quarters (71%) of people in the Midlands report experiencing one or more of low mood, anxiety, stress and trouble sleeping, frequently or occasionally. People from a black or black British background are more than three times as likely to be detained under the Act as white people.

Kufre, however appealed to government, health and educational sector to invest in comprehensive and integrated evidence based programmes for mental health of young people.

Allows the state to use up to $140 million per year of county mental health funds to repay up to $2 billion in bonds.

According to psychologists, among women those in the age group of 20 to 45 are more prone to mental health issues, almost 75 to 80 percent, followed by older women, who account for the rest. In addition to shining a light on mental illness, the week also offers an opportunity for behavioral health nurses to reflect on the impact they have in the lives of the people they serve. Over time, having good mental health may also reduce our risk of physical health problems. I realized that using these skills and working with underserved populations, such as those with mental illness, was my true calling. Out of managers who responded, 39 percent said someone has approached them to talk about their mental health, and ten percent said this was as recently as the last month.

Across England, more than 21,000 people were sectioned on 31 March, an increase of five per cent from a year previously - though part of this increase can be explained by some trusts not providing figures in 2017.
