"But mental health is much more hard to consider from a risk perspective due to the difficulties posed by pre-existing health conditions, less evident risks and potentially longer-term consequences". More than 60 years ago, Mental Health America made a choice to educate people that mental illnesses were as real as other physical illnesses and that they could be treated.

This year MHA is talking about "Risky Business". Everyone has mental health - it just fluctuates from positive mental health through to mental illness.

A recent study quizzing 2,000 Britons on the state of their mental well-being revealed that when it comes to boosting mental health, it's our friends and family that are most likely to help us out. However, mental health is more than just celebrity endorsement, or the steady stream of events and days dedicated to the cause.

"It seems to be easier for people later in life to spend time doing the things that are good for mental health, and young people struggling under the life's pressures could take a leaf out of the book the older generation appears to be reading!" We need to treat them with kindness and dignity. Socioeconomic, biological and environmental factors all play a role in mental health "An environment that respects and protects basic civil, political, socio-economic and cultural rights is fundamental to mental health promotion".

A new mental health bill sounds sweeping and decisive to the layperson, but the current Mental Health Act for England and Wales is mainly concerned with a specific but contentious element of mental health treatment: the legal processes and safeguards for detaining and treating a person without their consent if they are judged to threaten their own or others' health or safety. Where our mental health is concerned, that means making the choices we need to make to recognize and understand signs and symptoms of mental health concerns, and seeking help as soon as we need it.

Mr Burns heard from Port Lincoln and Eyre Peninsula residents to hear about what was needed for mental health services to help create a Mental Health Strategic Plan for the state.

Were May serious about reforming mental health care, she could set minimum standards to which all are entitled by law, including both inpatient and outpatient care. If you or a loved one are in need of emergency help, a crisis line volunteer can be reached at any time at 937-393-9904. By acting early, we can prevent many of these illnesses from progressing, or even occurring in the first place.
