Lady Gaga Pens Emotional Op-Ed About Mental Health Stigma

He added: "We now need to consider collectively what else social media platforms, which have expanded faster than regulations' ability to respond, need to do to help stem the tide of mental ill health in this country and others, or at least help pick up the pieces".

Gaga and Adhanom mentioned some of the high-profile celebrities who've died by suicide over the past year, including celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain and designer Kate Spade.

Gaga and Adhanom go on to draw attention to the lack of support that mental health receives - less than one percent of global aid - and call upon countries to do more. "Yet despite the universality of the issue, we struggle to talk about it openly or to offer adequate care or resources". What advice would you give those battling with their mental health?

For World Mental Health Day, musician and activist Lady Gaga helped to pen a powerful essay in The Guardian on the "emergency" of mental health crises and suicide around the world right now.

Depression was identified as the third leading cause of mental illnesses and disability among adolescents globally, while suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds. For many, these can be times of stress and anxiety, and these feelings can lead to serious mental illness if they are not recognised and managed in time.

Exactly a year after the start of the arbitration hearings that sought justice for the families of the dead Life Esidimeni patients, the esteemed The Lancet medical journal has released a global mental health report condemning the local disaster as "tragic".

He said growing up in an era when mental health was shunned and pushed under the rug has made over-60s particularly vulnerable to developing mental health issues.

"We can end the stigma that has forced too many to suffer in silence".

It's just as important to take action to look after your mental health, as your physical health.

"It's these people who need to be at the heart of what we do and I welcome this opportunity to work closely with them, as well as experts, to oversee a cross-Government suicide prevention plan, making their sure their views are always heard".
