How to be a better friend to someone with mental health issues

Professor Vikram Patel, one of the Commission's editors, said that mental health "is the foundation of human capability that makes each life worthwhile and meaningful".

As the World marks Mental Health Day, non-profit organisation Cape Mental Health has stressed the importance of breaking down stereotypes.

Responding to the new post, Hancock said the United Kingdom is "already making progress when it comes to suicide prevention" as the "suicide rate is at its lowest for seven years", 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".

"There are few greater examples than the injustices facing those with mental health conditions". Now more than ever, this must change.

Mental health problem among children and youth remains a neglected sector globally.

Along with highlighting mental illness in young people, the Lancet report recommended government's be held accountable and approach mental health from a human rights basis.

India buying Iran oil in defiance of Trump sanctions
Olivier Jakob of Petromatrix said: "One way or another, it looks as though India is going to take some Iranian crude". Saudi Arabia is the biggest oil exporter in the world and India is the third largest oil importer in the world.

In a new op-ed for the Guardian published on Tuesday, Gaga, along with World Health Organization director general Tedros Adhanom, urged readers to confront the shame and stigma that keeps people from speaking out about mental health. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds. We can all learn how to offer support to loved ones going through a hard time.

Half of all mental illness begins by the age of 14, but most cases go undetected and untreated. 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.

"The Commission calls out the shameful and shocking treatment of people with mental ill health around the world", said Dr Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet.

The Every Mind Matters guide also offers support for social anxiety, trauma, obsessions and compulsions or panic attacks and provides information for people wishing to help friends, family and colleagues experiencing mental health problems.

"As a government, we have delineated our health system for easy appreciation of the roles required by all stakeholders in the sector". But we want to see more.

"The new Mental Health Strategy and the other measures we are promoting today demonstrate that our work in the area is consistently evolving and improving as we move forward".
