Mental Health Month and MHP Classes

One in five adults in the U.S. experiences a mental illness in a given year or nearly 44 million Americans

The national torch relay launched in Blackpool last month is travelling around the country. An annual report on the state of the nation's mental health also forms part of its proposals.

Bell is delighted with the increased publicity that the initiative is receiving with Mental Health Awareness Week drawing to a close on Sunday, and is urging people to be aware of those who could be suffering from mental health issues.

"You keep talking to them".

Learn about mental health issues. "Even though you may feel you're not being heard, you may be the one person who's willing to plant the seed and start that person thinking about getting help".

Aiken-Barnwell Mental Health Center is a Community Mental Health Center operating under the South Carolina Department of Mental Health. What is increasingly clear though is that mental health is having severe cost consequences due to rising absenteeism, staff turnover, and lost productivity to name but a few factors. As a result, treatment and recovery may seem out of reach for many people that need help.

Three 30 second adverts will screened on STV and in cinemas featuring three young people thinking about what they're going to be when they grow up.

Lynn, who has battled mental health issues herself, visited the pupils of the service at the Beacon Building on College Street, which helps pupils with complex and medical needs return to mainstream provision. How many are doing this effectively and what support are they offering?

"We've found that around the world", Edwards explained.

Dianna Marshall, Program Director for the SDAS Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness (PAIMI) Program said "Wellness is more than absence of disease".
