World Mental Health Day and Your Organisation

Under the plans, the Government will publish a "State of the Nation" report every year highlighting trends in young people's mental well-being.

"With so many of our employees managing mental health conditions, it is our obligation to provide effective intervention and prioritize treating mental health on the same level as physical health", Gorsky said.

"This year's theme is "Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World", Mrs. Brandy-Williams explained". In this age group, bodily changes, hormonal changes, changing social standing and a maturing mind contribute to complex challenges when it comes to mental health parameters. But for many, these feelings can overwhelm them up to a point where their ability to manage stress, cope with change, or maintain relationships is affected. "Eating disorders are also of concern", the World Health Organization said.

"I think it resonates with everybody, one in two people suffers in some way with mental health problems".

She was of the view that it is hard for people to cope with the transition which in turn affects their mental health resulting in issues ranging from frustrations, stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, violence, addiction, depression, self-harm, and many more.

"We gave an overview of what mental health actually is, looking at the stigma around mental health and challenging that".

Beyond World Mental Health Day, Xero says it has a broader commitment to champion workplace diversity, inclusion, and flexible ways of working for everyone.

Here are some simple steps to taking care of your own mental well-being.

Dr Ramadan AlBlooshi, CEO, Dubai Healthcare City Authority - Regulatory, said, "In line with the Dubai Government's efforts, the DHCC aims to create a culture in which people feel safe and comfortable to talk about their issues, and are guaranteed the best care".

People wanting to help a depressed teenager could suggest that they talk to an external party like a teacher, doctor or counsellor, and offer to go with them for support.

"I felt helpless as it is hard to monitor what is happening online". This was stated in a newly releasedLancet Commission report on mental health. Our mind is equally important to us as our body. Cooking fresh ingredients with friends or family at home and eating together can also make mealtimes more social and enjoyable. Depression is the most common affective disorder (4%), and the harmful use of alcohol the most common substance use disorder (3%).

"It's up to employers to take a proactive approach to managing mental health in the workplace before it's too late". Physical activity doesn't just mean going to the gym, it could include going for a walk or run, doing some gardening or dancing; any movement that raises your heart rate and, preferably, something you enjoy. We respond to more than five million requests for help a year. It was initially started by the World Federation for Mental Health.

Campaigner Natasha Devon said the mental health first aiders would be trained in what to say and "crucially what not to say to someone who is struggling".
