Mental Health Awareness Week in the Northwoods

World Mental Health Day 2019 Mental Health Awareness

Although things have got better in recent years, handling mental health challenges remains a struggle for most Indians. This project is conducted in partnership with the Ministry of Health, concluded the statement.

"This year the World Federation for Mental Health has made suicide prevention the main theme of this important day", David Clark said.

In a UK-wide poll of more than 1,500 employees and employers, 24 per cent of workers said they now have a mental health condition and 23 per cent have had one in the past the same proportion indicated by the mental health charity Mind.

The bumpers are all part of HBO's new "It's Ok" initiative and its aim to raise awareness and destigmatize the conversation surrounding mental health.

He also thanked the Global Fund for having contributed 1.2 billion dollars towards Zambia's fight against the three diseases. The organization said the programs it has supported since its creation in 2002 have saved 32 million lives.

HBO Comedy programming is a big part of the initiative.

Andre Mannini, M's operations manager, said a year ago that the hospitality industry "must catch up with other industries and adopt an environment where a younger generation of employees have solid mental wellbeing and are inspired to perform to their finest when at work". The programming will debut in select episodes of HBO's Barry, Euphoria, Girls, Gary Gulman: The Great Depresh, Chris Gethard: Career Suicide, The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling Part 1 & 2 and more.

Safe In Our World, a new charity created to promote awareness of mental health issues and drive positive change within the video games industry and beyond, has launched to coincide with World Mental Health Day. Each bumper will contain a call to action for those who seek help at 1.833.HBO.NAMI or to visit NAMI.org. The Pakistan Association of Mental Health estimates that more than 34pc of the population is affected by mental illness, but they remain deprived of adequate treatment, mainly due to the lack of facilities and the societal stigma attached to the subject.

Last year, drinks trade charity The Benevolent carried out a similar survey, and found that almost half (48%) of industry workers thought discussing their mental health problems would damage their careers. Each commentary will live on social (YouTube) & HBO.com. The comedy special offers candid reflections on Gulman's struggles with depression through stand-up and short documentary interludes that provide insight into his mental health journey.
