Lady Gaga Pens Brutally Honest Letter About Mental Health

Lady Gaga Pens Brutally Honest Letter About Mental Health

Lady Gaga may be best known for her music, but the singer is also an outspoken advocate for mental health.

He tweeted: "By talking openly and honestly about our mental health challenges, we can break down stigma, help others feel supported, and build a healthier, more compassionate society for everyone".

The project is important to Marc because it reminds young people that many others have had similar experiences with mental health issues. Currently, too little attention is paid to the issue, as a result of which tens of thousands of people suffer in silence.

New research from Sport New Zealand shows that physically active Kiwis are more likely to have good mental health, Minister for Sport and Recreation, Grant Robertson, said today.

How do you even start a conversation about the mental health crisis in this country?

"The lack of resources to deal with this issue is another example of a false economy brought about austerity".

Half of mental health disorders arise before the age of 14, but most cases are not detected or treated until much later, according to the latest data from the World Health Organization. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15- to 29-year-olds.

Astronauts survive emergency landing after booster fails on Russian rocket
US astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin are counting down to their 4:40am ET Thursday launch to the station. NASA said that rescue teams have reached Hague and Ovchinin and they've been taken out of the capsule and were in good condition.

Despite this alarming scenario, mental health continues to be a taboo topic with huge stigma attached to it.

'Mental health services are still being underfunded by the Conservative government, with one in 10 CCGs (clinical commissioning groups) failing to meet the mental health investment standard in the past year - that is leading to adults having to wait as many as four months for treatment in certain areas, while one in four children are being rejected for treatment after referral'.

In the meantime, Acting Director for the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Unit in the Ministry of Health Kevin Goulbourne is concerned that not many persons are able to detect young relatives who may be suffering from a mental illness.

Samaritans CEO Ruth Sutherland said they "welcome the government's announcement of funding towards Samaritans' helpline, which will meet around 10 percent of the total helpline costs for the next four years and help us to continue to provide our service free of charge".

Five years after giving birth and now studying in her third year at university, Rachael, 20, is sharing her emotional voyage, navigating through a perinatal mental health pathway, to mark World Mental Health Day.

Most employees (72 per cent) want employers to champion the cause of mental health and well-being, according to a survey published today - World Mental Health Day. "The statistics make worrying reading for our industry and anything I can do to help people with their current situation is very important to me and also personally, very rewarding". Have you ever thought that the maid who works in your home, the sweeper who keeps your lane clean, and the rickshaw-puller who takes you places needs mental health treatment support?
