Gaga and Adhanom are also quick to point out that suicide is just one symptom of a much larger issue.

On Tuesday, The Guardian published an opinion piece by a seemingly unlikely duo: pop star and actor Lady Gaga and Tedros Adhanom, the Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Cape Mental Health's Dylan Oktober said: "It's particularly important that we highlight the utmost importance of your mental health".

"There are only 0.58 beds per 100,000 population in Nepal to avail mental health services while hospitals providing mental health services are only available in urban areas", said Dr Basudev Karki, psychiatrist at Mental Hospital in Patan.

"In my time as health minister I have met many people who have been bereaved by suicide and their stories of pain and loss will stay with me for a long time".

According to a press release by the office of the special adviser, media, Edo State, Mr Obaseki said the societal discrimination against people with mental health problems has further compounded efforts by governments, experts and other stakeholders at designing products for the treatment of patients and reintegrating them into the society.

Responding to the new Government funding announced today, Samaritans chief executive Ruth Sutherland said: "We welcome the Government's announcement of funding towards Samaritans' helpline, which will meet around 10 per cent of the total helpline costs for the next four years and help us to continue to provide our service free of charge".
