The report, which brought together 28 global experts in psychiatry, public health, neuroscience, advocacy and people with first-hand experience of mental health conditions, exposes a "collective failure to respond to this global health crisis, causing long-lasting and preventable harm to people, communities and economies", said the paper.

So, early interventions, prevention, resilience support and programs to educate young people and the world around them should be instituted by providing balanced lifestyle actions which includes balanced diet, exercise, and healthy sleep hygiene. In this age group, bodily changes, hormonal changes, changing social standing and a maturing mind contribute to complex challenges when it comes to mental health parameters.

Comprehensive behavioral assessments help psychologists to identify mental health disorders or some imbalance such as: sleep disorders, work life integration, burnout, and anxiety.

According to WHO, teenagers as young as 14 suffer from mental health issues. He said according to the World Health Organization half of all mental illness begins by the age of 14 but most cases go undetected and untreated. Kelly O'Connor Kay, interim executive director for the Los Angeles-based non-profit Maternal Mental Health Now, said the bill will help ensure more women get treated for postpartum depression. Reducing stigma, raising awareness and providing support begins in your home, in your school, in your workplace and in your community.It is our social responsibility.Until and unless mental health problems are recognized and treated at the right time an individual can not lead a happy life and any nation cannot progress.

Meanwhile, another mental health drive has also been launched, called Let's Talk and backed by Mental Health UK.

And all primary and secondary schools will be asked to regularly measure their pupils' mental well-being, as part of lessons in relationships, sex and health education.

Mental health researchers and practitioners have also found other mental health issues like substance use disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in children, he added.

The CEO Roundtable will release the complete findings of the survey, along with mental health program summaries from member companies, in a report later this year.

Meanwhile, over the last decade nearly five times as many students have disclosed a mental health condition to their university compared with 10 years ago.

If not handled well, stress and mental health issues go on to have a serious impact on people in their work as well as private lives.

Dr McNamara noted the timeliness of Mental Health Awareness Week coinciding with Teagasc's Fodder and Finance Budgeting Week, during which Teagasc advisors will be available to visit farms and give practical advice about feeding, fodder production and financial budgeting to both Teagasc clients and non-clients.

"We are aware that improvements to the system have taken place over the years but we feel we can not wait another two, four, six years for certain changes to be made".

However, it is incredibly important that children and adolescents do receive the professional help and support when they need it, rather than waiting months or even years for treatment. We must focus, but not only on the pressing issues of suicide and serious mental illness.
