New York State Launches Mandatory Mental Health Classes

New York State Launches Mandatory Mental Health Classes

Peng had worked as a Chinese teacher for more than 10 years before devoting herself to mental health advocate and educator, providing information to reduce prejudice against mental health and reduce stigma among caregivers.

At least 177 countries were featured in a report from WHO earlier this year which charted the progressive implementation of its 2013 global action plan on mental health.

Kufre, however appealed to government, health and educational sector to invest in comprehensive and integrated evidence based programmes for mental health of young people. "We can all learn how to offer support to loved ones going through a hard time. we can all be a part of a new movement - including people who have faced mental illness themselves - to call on governments and industry to put mental health at the top of their agendas". "In some cases, if not recognised and managed, these feelings can lead to mental illness".

Speaking on the second day of the Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London, Mr Stevens said the "broader influences" on young people's mental health must be addressed.

In the 2016-2017 National Survey of Children's Health, results of a sample count approximated that in the state of NY, about 54.5 percent of children ages 3 to 17 did not receive mental and behavioral health treatment and counseling that they needed for disorders such as depression, anxiety, and other behavioral or conduct problems.


Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health and Population Upendra Yadav has expressed concern over the increase in the number of mental patients in Nepal every year due to illiteracy, unemployment, migration, social disintegration, poverty and natural disasters. "Communicate that it's fine to take time off to get better and there won't be any negative impact on their career for doing so".

The main reason behind the rise in this is a financial hardship, lack of proper education, physical illness, and shortage of basic resources as well as inability to provide basic things to the family are leading to the mental illness among the people in the country.

Anxiety and depression are the most common categories of mental illnesses.

This makes mental illness one of the most prevalent illnesses known to man. But both of us have seen how political leadership, funding, innovation and individual acts of bravery and compassion can change the world. If you're a nurse, I encourage you to reflect on Mental Health Awareness Week and take a leap to check out the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division Nursing Job Fair on October 18 from 2-5 p.m.

A film has launched in Dundee shining a light on mental health issues faced by young people in the city. "We all know that a young person with support, stability and the information will usually lead to a positive healthy adult".
