United Nations chief calls for more attention to mental health

PM Theresa May appoints ‘world’s first’ minister for suicide prevention

But on Tuesday, Gaga took her advocacy work to another level when she wrote an op-ed for The Guardian to bring attention and awareness to the global mental health crisis.

Chiara Servili, an adviser at the WHO's Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, said that schools play an important role in all this.

The article explained that around the world, mental health conditions cost roughly US$2.5 trillion per year, "a figure that is expected to balloon to $6tn by 2030 unless we take action".

According to psychologists, among women those in the age group of 20 to 45 are more prone to mental health issues, almost 75 to 80 percent, followed by older women, who account for the rest. "It has also been observed that the young educated working couples seek professional help more often than witnessed earlier".

An official audit on one day in March this year revealed that almost 500 people were detained under the Mental Health Act in Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust.

A seminar on mental health was held at the university campus later.

She founded the Born This Way Foundation in 2012 to help young people address mental wellness, and she herself has been open about surviving a sexual assault by a record producer when she was 19 years old.

"Young people are constantly battling the effects of human rights violations, war and violence in our homes, schools and workplaces, competing cultures from all around us through television and the internet, where they experience cyber-crimes, cyber-bullying".

Life Esidimeni, they say, is an example of poorly planned deinstitutionalisation. "If we wait until people are adults we have waited too long", she said. "When we act locally, suicide rates go down".

Among the Qatar Airways events and activities that have been organised for this year's programme include a photography competition, "Mental Health through my Lens", inviting Qatar Airways Group employees to submit a photo with a description of how the image connects to one of the five themes.

"Driven by violence, environmental changes and inequality, mental disorders are going unchecked in every country in the world". What is really worrying is that, today, India's children and youth are more stressed and suffer from anxiety and panic attacks and performance issues more than ever before.

"Our conscience as a people is reflected in how we house and care for the mentally ill in our communities and institutions; our conscience as a people is revealed in how we invest and provide for the vulnerable in our society who are unable to make good decisions for themselves", she said.
