Corson says there is no health without mental health and talking about it can be the key to saving countless lives in the future.

Today is World Mental Health Day - an opportunity to take stock of the importance of good mental health.

Mental disorders are on the rise in every country in the world and will cost the global economy $16 trillion by 2030, according to a new Lancet Commission report on mental health released on Tuesday. This day, each October, thousands of supporters come to celebrate this annual awareness program to bring attention to mental illness and its major effects on peoples' life worldwide.

Every Mind Matters has been developed in conjunction with leading charities, academics and clinicians and is endorsed by leading experts in mental health. "This role transition that youngsters face makes them more vulnerable", says Dr Kedar Tilwe Dr.Kedar Tilwe, Psychiatrist, Sexologist and Geriatric psychiatrist, Hiranandani Hospital, Vashi - A Fortis Network Hospital. "It's well worth time to talk about it, a whole lot more".

"Part of it has to be these illnesses being really poorly understood. people with lived experience haven't necessarily been comfortable to share their experience publicly". Depression is the most common affective disorder (4%), and the harmful use of alcohol the most common substance use disorder (3%). The habits formed during adolescence become one's lifestyle, milestones with various long term implications for adult health. Although it has been prevalent since the early 2000s, it's only recently that we've decoded its impact on young people's mental health and the findings are not very encouraging. "Issues of peer pressure, puberty, technology and natural disasters are cited by the World Health Organization (WHO) as some areas which can lead to anti-social behaviour". People should learn to seek professional help rather than bottling it.

For too many, lack of first-hand knowledge about mental illness coupled with inadequate support in coping with it is overwhelming.

Teams of volunteers and staff from the WA Association for Mental Health also handed out information packs at train stations in Cockburn, Joondalup and Perth. This year, the theme of World Mental Health Day is "Young people and mental health in a changing world" - a vital concern given that approximately 1 in 5 adolescents experience mental and behavioural problems in any given year.

Global figures indicate that half of all mental illnesses begin by the age of 14 and three-quarters by mid-20s according to the World Health Organisation that marks World Mental Health Day. The more we talk about mental health, the more we can identify and support those in need. "We can not expect to save lives if people who need help are being turned away from specialist care", they wrote in the Sydney Morning Herald on Monday.

Without the support they need, many working people are struggling; taking time off work, being less productive and some are even leaving work.

More than one in four (27%) didn't want to be around others. They can suffer from debilitating fears that affect not only their mental health but also the overall health of their business. We need youth at every table.
