The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day (WMHD) on 10 October every year as an opportunity to raise "awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health."This year's theme, set by the World Federation for Mental Health, is 'Young people and mental health in a changing world'".

"Let us be more accepting of those with mental health challenges including our young people who continue to face many challenges in their daily lives". We can prevent the tragedy of suicide taking too many lives. Results from our Workplace Wellbeing Index show that 48 per cent of employees have experienced a mental health problem at their current job.

"I was there along with my team that included clinical psychologist Khaisa Noreen Muhammad Bashir, social worker Shaista Razaq and other local volunteers". The second part of the bill requiring guidelines for obstetricians is especially important, she said, because it's created to make California's law more effective than bills in some other states that only require screening. "The intra-family relations were found to be at the low-level of attachment that in turn is affecting the mood of the people of Chitral who are otherwise known as soft-spoken and tolerant".

"National takes tackling mental health issues seriously".

Being a younger executive, Hudson said he had an ability to break the mould.

Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of the medical journal the Lancet, which commissioned the report, said it highlighted the "shameful and shocking treatment of people with mental ill health around the world".
