The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day (WMHD) on 10 October every year as an opportunity to raise "awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health."This year's theme, set by the World Federation for Mental Health, is 'Young people and mental health in a changing world'".

I think one of the issues that powers the stigma surrounding mental health is a lack of confidence or awareness of how to start a conversation on the topic.

New research commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation shows that more than one in 10 children aged between 10 and 15 say they have no-one to talk to or wouldn't talk to anyone in school if they feel anxious or sad.

The event runs alongside the Open Shutters exhibition in Gallery Oldham, a collection of 32 photographic portraits celebrating people who have taken strength and positivity from their mental health journeys.

"Mental health is often overlooked and people aren't talking about it a lot", she added.

Xero is one company that is taking the importance of mental health seriously. One in four people across the United Kingdom experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives, and in England, one in six workers experiences stress, anxiety or depression in any given week.

"These, among others, represent some of the cases that the Mental Health Unit addresses on a daily basis", Mrs. Brandy-Williams said. It was great to see so numerous profession in attendance with enthusiasm to change the status quo.

The prime minister has also pledged up to £1.8 million to ensure the Samaritans' helpline remains free for the next four years, to help those most in need.

Campaigner Natasha Devon said the mental health first aiders would be trained in what to say and "crucially what not to say to someone who is struggling".

"Mental health is the foundation of human capability that makes each life worthwhile and meaningful".

"Central to this campaign is the concept of empowerment". If our children and youth are not mentally strong, how can we build a strong nation?

Mr Ellwood said while much had been achieved in changing attitudes to mental health there was still a long way to go and that some people could be afraid of the stigma.

It is being promoted to adults across the Midlands, and is being supported by a range of public sector, charity, and commercial partners.

"Life is so fast that we get caught up in ourselves and we need to as a community come together".

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: 'We're already making progress when it comes to suicide prevention, the suicide rate is at its lowest for seven years.

"We have de-stigmatised the mild and moderate mental health illnesses or the very common ones but those with the more complex conditions get pushed to the side and marginalised further", she says.
