Xero champions mental health awareness and support in the workplace

Adolescence is a time for fun and frolic, for growth and adventure so then why are we worrying about mental health?

It's incredibly important to make sure you carve out some time for yourself every week and give your body and mind some time to relax and re-energise. We have taken the lead and run a session in every region and nation of the United Kingdom for our workplace representatives, so they can support their friends and colleagues at work.

We launched our new resource on 14 May during Mental Health Awareness Week 2018 at event hosted by Peter Lawson Chairman of Burness Paull alongside Kenny Robertson, Head of Legal at RBS, and Calum Irving, CEO of SeeMe. The entire family suffers many a times in silence because it is shameful to talk about 'mental health issues 'and one fine day it is all over.

"We, at the Ministry of Health, therefore, continue to place attention on the holistic treatment of a patient and not just physical health conditions, but mental and spiritual health as well". But today, they can no longer to brushed under the carpet.

The plight of adolescents struggling with mental health problems has come under spotlight for World Mental Health Day on October 10.

The average suicide rate in India is 10.9 for every lakh people and the majority of people who commit suicide are below 44 years of age.

According to Dr Dutta, changing family structures, values, technology, perspective towards life, competition and stress make this demographic particularly vulnerable to mental health problems.

This year's theme for World Mental Health Day is Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World.

According to the global agency, 10 to 20 per cent of children and adolescents worldwide suffer from mental disorders.

Comprehensive behavioral assessments help psychologists to identify mental health disorders or some imbalance such as: sleep disorders, work life integration, burnout, and anxiety. Other causes could be genetic factors as well as traumatic incidents in a teenager's life.

Mental healthcare should also be an essential component of universal health coverage, which will soon be implemented in South Africa as the National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme.

Changing Minds is a Lottery funded project, but as the Lottery funding runs out in November, they are searching for further funding. It could be that they have entered college, have started a job for the first time or are living overseas alone. This can have a negative impact on how a person feels and how well they cope with everyday stresses.

Not surprisingly, most workers (77 percent) believe that people should take proactive steps to manage their mental health, and more than half (57 percent) believe that apps and online technologies are going to become the first option many people use to do so. However, majority are not treated. Youth are important in bettering the economy of any country and in turn by shaping its future. Awareness around the issue has prompted many people, including celebs, to speak up about their experience, making others suffering from the condition feel they are not alone.

"Increasingly we're starting to see big business understand the role they play in working with us as a cohort".

Those wanting to help raise awareness of mental health issues can choose to wear a green ribbon, seen as the global symbol for the movement.

One in 10 children (11%) has no-one to talk to, or would not talk to anyone in school, if they felt anxious or sad, a survey has found.
