"I am delighted we are appointing Jackie Doyle-Price as our dedicated minister for suicide prevention, and I know she will make a real difference".

The Day provides an opportunity for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.

"Young people are constantly battling the effects of human rights violations, war and violence in our homes, schools and workplaces, competing cultures from all around us through television and the internet, where they experience cyber-crimes, cyber-bullying. Young people living in situations such as these are particularly vulnerable to mental distress and illness", wrote World Health Organization on its website. This week alone, it's estimated about 500,000 Canadians will miss work due to their mental health condition.

Dagg notes mental health issues cost the Canadian economy up to $50 billion a year.
