Au launches men's mental health campaign to stop 'the silent killer'

One in six people every week experience a common mental health problem like anxiety or depression

"We are raising awareness about men's mental health not because women's mental health doesn't matter but because of the stark gender imbalance in suicide rates and experts who believe men could be helped if they had better targeted support". "One in four of us will have to deal with a mental health condition at some point in our lives, and if we're not directly affected, someone we care for is likely to be". He urged those close to people with mental illness to remain patient and supportive. "We can all be a part of a new movement -- including people who have faced mental illness themselves -- to call on governments and industry to put mental health at the top of their agendas".

Substance use disorders are more common for younger people (13%) than other age groups, while anxiety disorders are more common in people aged 35-44 (18%). Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15- to 29-year-olds. 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.

The support is there, everyone understands, the help is ready and waiting.

We live in a country where waiting lists are months long, misdiagnoses are rampant, medication is handed out as a quick-fix, and many (but not all) doctors are still dismissing symptoms as well, essentially, nothing. "You don't have to be an global artist or the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) to make an impact". It offloads, it releases, it provides a space for the intense feelings of stress and panic that can overwhelm and debilitate.

The big difference here is that Aladdin is directed by Guy Ritchie , as in the guy behind Snatch (yay!) and King Arthur (boo!). The new Aladdin is one of several upcoming live-action adaptations of Disney's library of animated classics.

The move, meant to tackle the tragedy of 4,500 people taking their own lives in England each year, comes on World Mental Health Day.

Dr Sands suggested mental illness greatly increases the risk of contracting other serious medical conditions such as HIV, diabetes, and heart disease.

And of course they will. As the Director of Nursing with the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division, I see first hand the impact nurses have on people every day.

Peng had worked as a Chinese teacher for more than 10 years before devoting herself to mental health advocate and educator, providing information to reduce prejudice against mental health and reduce stigma among caregivers. "We invite all staff and family members to participate in the many activities created to promote greater understanding of ways we can support ourselves and each other in this important area". That chat might help someone, a lot.
