Residents encouraged to open up about mental health in Stevenage

Residents encouraged to open up about mental health in Stevenage

So rejoice. We've launched a snazzy new podcast discussing all things mental health without getting too serious, science-y, or stuffy.

On the day that the Daily Telegraph ran their interview with Prince Harry, the chief executives of YoungMinds and 15 other charities published a letter calling on political parties to recognise the problem of child mental health in their manifestos. Often the biggest battle for an employee is not against external stigma, i.e. what his colleagues may think if they find out that he has a mental health issue, but internal stigma, when an individual is so concerned that his disclosure of a mental health issue will adversely impact him (regardless of whether it is objectively likely to do so or not) that they refuse to disclose their issue, nearly always just worsening the situation. "It is time to ensure that the wellbeing of students is as important as academic achievement in schools". This needs to be considered when governments are making changes to exams, tests and accountability systems. The GOP plan sets aside some money for mental health, but experts say it would largely dismantle such care. "We have made great strides in the health of our bodies, we now need to achieve the same for the health of our minds". SPVMHC works closely with local court systems and provides prevention programs created to discourage bullying and substance use/abuse to local school districts. As a result, treatment and recovery may seem out of reach for many people that need help. "Without the security and freedom provided by these rights, it is very hard to maintain a high level of mental health", according to WHO. We ask ourselves so many questions and begin to doubt our ability to be a mother, but we forget to take into consideration that every child is different and their rate of developing will also be different. Finally, what outward signs there are of poor mental health often involve an individual withdrawing from their peers, rather than actively seeking them out, occasionally also becoming irritable and/or morose or over-friendly. These staggering numbers necessitate quality care.

GETTYTwo in five of those surveyed believe they have experienced depression in their lives

Mental health is, undoubtedly, an essential segment of health care, and a quick look at this nation's social ills demonstrates the far-reaching tentacles of inadequate care. Indeed, it may add to the delays already being experienced, with more cases being identified, leading to a bigger bottleneck at CAMHS. Children, parents and schools need action much more quickly than this, and that can only happen if the funding of CAMHS is substantially increased.
