Education minister announces $40M for student mental health

"The theme of this year's World Mental Health Day is suicide prevention, and we must all come together in the legal community to improve dialogue on mental health issues".

Among those who experienced symptoms, only 40% had not talked to someone at work about it, a fact the authors of the study called "promising" because it shows that conversations about mental health are "happening slightly more often for those who are facing mental health challenges".

In Ontario, 70 per cent of mental health and addictions issues begin in childhood or adolescence. "They don't know that mental illness is a disease which can have biological and genetic origins", said Dr He Yanling from the Shanghai Mental Health Center and a leading researcher on the survey.

"We listen to many songs which are pro-suicide, we should discourage such songs, because a person facing a depression-like situation and listening to such songs may become emotional and reach a high level of anxiety". Nearly half (47 per cent) of men with a mental health condition have never raised it at work, compared to 43 per cent of female sufferers.

Policymakers have spoken of "parity of esteem" between mental and physical health and the research suggests employers are alert to the growing focus on wellbeing.

Much still needs to be done in order to prevent suicide and to build support for people experiencing suicidal thoughts. At the same time, it is imperative that the government engage in a robust campaign to remove societal stigmas attached to the treatment of mental health problems.

Nevertheless, the survey found that despite the perceived taboo, support is available in many companies. Among the survey responders, 61 percent said that their productivity at work was affected by their mental health.
