Spark Foundry will mark World Mental Health Day by closing all Australian offices, asking staff instead take the day to reflect on their own mental health. It's time we speak about these issues fervently.

World Mental Health Day (10 October) is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma.

An award-winning Burnley gym operator is out to promote the positive impact exercise can have on mental health by offering people a free five-day pass in honour of World Mental Health Day.

"We also see, every day, the unbelievable healing and calming abilities of yoga and mindfulness, and we want to share it".

Over its ten year trajectory, the Million Minds Research Mission will target five broad areas of critical importance to national mental health and wellbeing. "Rather let them know that you care and want to understand, that they are not alone, and that problems and suicidal feelings are temporary - that depression can be treated and problems can be solved", Seape said.

Schools will be asked to monitor children's happiness and mental health in a bid to tackle growing levels of anxiety among young people, the Prime Minister will announce today. One in four people in the United Kingdom suffer from this illness and I really hope this campaign will continue to extend the conversation about how important good mental health is, and how urgently we need the government to pour money into mental health resources - the county's crying out for it.

The World Health Organisation said this critical age group is "very much at the risk of being left behind" in development agendas of countries. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, in 2015, Medicaid covered 21 percent of adults with mental illness, 26 percent of adults with serious mental illness and 17 percent of adults with substance use disorder. But doing something kind or caring for someone who you are close to can help you to feel better, even just giving your time or skills to help someone out.

Furthermore, Severino admitted after the game, "I wasn't commanding my stuff", right from the first pitch. In fact, he joked that the Red Sox will have an edge with Hernandez calling balls and strikes.

More than a quarter (26%) of people aged 16-24 years and a similar proportion (25%) of people aged 25-34 years had a 12-month mental disorder, compared with 6% of those aged 75-85 years old.

Mental illness costs society almost $200 billion annually, often striking young adults who, as wage earners, would otherwise contribute to the economy and to their own welfare. Lack of treatment, in turn, also often leads to disability and lack of self-sufficiency. It is important, she says, to lend a ear when any youth does report being stressed.

"I have suffered myself, as has my family, with anxiety and depression and struggled to get the appropriate treatment, so I'm thrilled to back this cause to destigmatise any issues around mental health concerns, and open up the dialogue".

After that, trying to bridge the gap between personal and professional lives in a positive way can be hard, but Barwise says it's ultimately important to encourage people to share if they feel comfortable.

It also warns of falling numbers of child psychiatrists, at a time when demand continues to rise.

"A common problem with the mental health system is the social stigma attached to seeking help or speaking to a mental health professional".
