How to be a better friend to someone with mental health issues

Lady Gaga co-writes new op-ed about suicide and mental health On World Mental Health Day, a look back at the meanest things people say

On October 10 every year, the world observes the day to draw attention to the importance of mental health. The theme for this year is "Young people and mental health in a changing world". It was in 1992 that it was first celebrated, an initiative by the World Federation for Mental Health.

Speaking to Eyewitness News, Sadag's Cassey Chambers says that from research, adolescents have been found to be the most at-risk age group of taking their own lives.

Depression was identified as the third leading cause of mental illnesses and disability among adolescents globally, while suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds. "Since children can not express their mental problems, it remains unidentified and affects them more as they grow older".

The governor explained that people with mental health problems deserve love, care, understanding and support.

"The main contributing factors include relationship problems (with a boyfriend/girlfriend, fighting with a best friend, etc.), family issues (divorce, separation, abuse, conflict, etc.), trauma (loss, grief, abuse, rape, etc.) and school problems (bullying, learning difficulties)".

The Bad Romance singer previously took a career break to look after her mental health, telling The Mirror: 'I take medication.

He told Sky Sports News: "Mental health is indiscriminate to whatever size house you live in, whatever vehicle you drive, how much money you have in the bank, how many holidays you have".

"A child can suffer huge stress due to small reasons like getting scolded or bullied in school, disputes between parents and even day-to-day pressure like forcing for a haircut", said Dr Arjun Raj Kunwar, child and adolescent psychiatrist at Kanti Children's Hospital. "We all need to do better to help tackle this".

Jason McAteer hopes the release of his Through the Storm documentary - made in conjunction with Liverpool FC - encourages people to open up about mental health issues.
