A Reminder That Today Is National Children's Mental Health Day

Sam wants to offer hope to other sufferers ahead of Mental Health Awareness Week

The marquee event in the national lineup is today, designated Children's Mental Health Awareness Day, sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration under the U.S. Health and Human Services Department.

Central England is also creating 50 mental health and wellbeing champions who will offer support by signposting colleagues towards resources and help regarding mental health. "So investing in mental health supports for young people, including ensuring free access to medications for anyone aged 24 and under, will help students stay healthy while they learn". Help can come in many forms and for some of us we may need more support than others.

Mr Coleman will point to investment in mental health services growing by 18 per cent to $1.4 billion in 2015/16, but admits more needs to be done.

He said 60 per cent of suicides in the a year ago were people who hadn't accessed help.

Good mental health is more than the absence of a mental health problem.

"This announcement seems like just more tinkering from a Minister who has failed to take seriously the concerns of people directly affected by many years of underfunding of mental health services".

What is very important, says Wentz, is that mental illness and substance-use disorders, which are present in about 60 percent of people with mental illness, must be recognized as real illnesses and they must be treated at the same level as physical health conditions.

"But the health system and wider social sector is responding". "We can recognize when we are not feeling well, and reach out for help to get better", said a May 3 release.

According to mental health advocates at school, some may be reluctant to seek treatment because the Medical School Promotion and Review Board-which can require a student to withdraw or recommend expulsion-can take mental health into account while considering student cases.

Kirsty Schofield, course leader and senior lecturer in midwifery at Sheffield Hallam, suggested more clinicians should be qualified to deal with maternal and perinatal mental health due to demand.

"Over the last decade demand for secondary mental health and addiction services has increased from 2.3 per cent to 3.6 per cent of the population, an increase from around 96,000 people, to nearly 168,000 people".
