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

According to World Health Organization, half all the mental illnesses begins by age 14 and often goes undetected and untreated.

In the meantime, Acting Director for the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Unit in the Ministry of Health Kevin Goulbourne is concerned that not many persons are able to detect young relatives who may be suffering from a mental illness.

"Dedicated to promoting mental health services and providing peer support within the underserved Chinese community, Elaine Peng helped establish the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Chinese Community Service Committee in the San Francisco Bay Area and developed the first NAMI Chinese website in the United States, in addition to having developed multiple NAMI programs for the Chinese community", said Wieckowski in a California Senate resolution dated September 26. Psychosocial support can be provided in schools and other community settings and, of course, training for health workers to enable them to detect and manage mental health disorders can be put in place, improved or expanded. In fact, India has the highest suicide rate among young people in the world.

She said depression is the third leading cause of disease while suicide is the second leading cause among youths of 15 to 29 years.

The numbers of young people, including children under the age of 14, presenting and dealing with mental illnesses is rising.

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

Speaking on World Mental Health Day, Commission joint lead editor Professor Vikram Patel, from Harvard Medical School in the United States, said: "Mental health is the foundation of human capability that makes each life worthwhile and meaningful".

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. "We can not expect to save lives if people who need help are being turned away from specialist care", they wrote in the Sydney Morning Herald on Monday.

You can't deny the positive impact that talking does.

News.com.au editor-in-chief Kate de Brito said: "We are seeing these stories every day and the statistics are horrifying".

"Instead of treating those facing mental health conditions with the compassion we would offer to someone with a physical injury or illness, we ostracize, blame and condemn", the essay continued, adding that funding to help mental illness around the world is terribly low. "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".
