He, therefore, called on the government to invest by raising awareness among adolescents and young adults on ways to look after their mental health.

Mental disorders are estimated to cost the global community almost $2.5 trillion each year - and those costs are increasing.

It also recommended a wholesale shift to community-based care for mental health patients, with psychosocial treatments such as talking therapies being offered not just by medical professionals, but also by community health workers, peers, teachers and the clergy.

'How India Perceives Mental Health, ' a report published by The Live Love Laugh Foundation (TLLLF) in March 2018 to measure the public perception of mental health across eight Indian cities revealed that 87% of respondents associated mental illness with severe disorders (like schizophrenia and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) and their symptoms. "Within families and communities, we often remain silenced by a shame that tells us that those with mental illness are somehow less worthy or at fault for their own suffering".

WHO, in its recommendations, called for the integration of mental health into primary healthcare. The op-ed starts with Gaga and Dr. Adhanom discussing the alarmingly high suicide rate, which they cite as the second leading cause of death of people between ages 15 and 29 globally. "Parents and teachers can help build life skills of children and adolescents to help them cope with everyday challenges at home and at school". The expanding use of online technologies, while undoubtedly bringing many benefits, can also bring additional pressures, as connectivity to virtual networks at any time of the day and night grows.

"As a government, we have delineated our health system for easy appreciation of the roles required by all stakeholders in the sector".

"Anyone who cares about poverty, education, social cohesion or economic progress should work to improve mental health, putting the vast knowledge we have on promotion, prevention and care into action", said Patel. We have commenced the construction of primary health centres across the state to reach all Edo people and residents irrespective of where they reside.
