What is it, when is it and what is 2018's theme?

Mental Health Awareness Week takes place this week with World Mental Health Day on Wednesday 10th October.

Professor Kay-Lambkin also sits on the panel with director and chief scientist at Black Dog Institute Scientia Professor Helen Christensen, and Professor Patrick McGorry, executive director of Orygen, the National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health.

In a separate survey, of 800 people who had attended general first aid courses with St John Ambulance, more than half (55%) were unaware that employees had rights if treated unfairly by their bosses on mental health grounds.

The weeklong event, on the theme: 'Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World, ' seeks to draw attention to the importance of mental health, with particular focus on adolescent and young people, and create the platform for education, awareness and advocacy. It's this stigma which is part of the reason why time taken off for mental health represents the single biggest cost to United Kingdom businesses - All the evidence shows the earlier mental ill health is detected the easier it is to treat and manage.

Whether in honor of lost loved ones or those now affected by mental illness, students and community members alike joined the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) at their first annual Strides Against Stigma walk on Sunday.

The GMWS reiterated that these are not local statistics, adding that until Gibraltar has its own database it has to gauge local needs based on research results elsewhere.

"Mental wellness is extremely important to overall wellbeing. This attitude further compounds efforts by governments, experts and other stakeholders at designing products for the treatment of patients and reintegrating them into the society", he said.

One important step people agreed was having Mental Health First Aiders in each workplace.

The most common mental health condition is anxiety, which affects 5.9 in every 100 people.

Additionally, the GMWS said the "strain" on the psychiatric services has recently been brought to the fore, including the delays in sentencing in court due to pending psychiatric reports.

Still, counselors say more parents may support the law once they start to see children getting the counseling they need.

"We are aware that improvements to the system have taken place over the years but we feel we can not wait another two, four, six years for certain changes to be made".

It explained that the lack of such a facility can have dire effects on the diagnosis and treatment of children. Opening up conversations across the globe, and focusing on what can be done to improve our understanding of these conditions and illnesses is what World Mental Health Day is all about.

"This was a GSLP commitment in the 2011 Manifesto and we would like it to be acted on".

On campus, NAMI provides an opportunity for students who are passionate about mental illness to get involved, promote awareness and meet others with similar interests. According to the National Association of Mental Illness, almost 60 percent of adults with a mental illness didn't receive mental health services in the previous year.

"The 2030 Agenda is clear: We must leave no one behind".

"We feel that the mental health staff in the GHA are already working very hard, providing a very good service of care within the remit of their responsibilities, but beyond that there is simply not a solid enough structure available to ensure best practice".
