Global mental health report blasts South Africa for Esidimeni

A new online survey by The Cohen Veterans Network and The National Council for Behavioral Health finds that, despite increasing demand, a lack of awareness of services and social stigma around seeking mental health care, persists in America.

It is believed that mental health issues start before 14 years of age and 75 percent of youth identify the problems before they reach 24 years.

World Health Organization in a press statement released on Tuesday called for regular checks for symptoms of mental illnesses beginning at a young age. They can also be times of stress and apprehension.

Theresa May will announce an annual "state of the nation" report on young people's mental health and reveal Tory MP Jackie Doyle-Price as the first-ever suicide prevention minister.

"There are few greater examples than the injustices facing those with mental health conditions".

Parents who are anxious about their children's mental wellbeing can call YoungMinds' parent helpline on 0808 802 5544 between 9.30am and 4pm Monday to Friday.

Countries at the summit are expected to support a global declaration to achieve equity for mental health, marking the first time national governments have made a joint pledge to put mental health on an equal footing with physical health.

The governor explained that people with mental health problems deserve love, care, understanding and support.

"The Benin Specialist Hospital will be open to offer specialist care to patients before the end of the year and we have received letters of intent from experts in the health sector, who want to partner with us to ensure that our health system can meet the needs of our people", he added.
