The Michigan State study also found things where you live, how much money you make, and how old you are can also play a part in recognizing mental health conditions in others.

The national torch relay launched in Blackpool last month is travelling around the country.

Hello Instagram! It's #mentalhealthawareness week and if you're a new follower of mine, you might not know how close to my heart mental health is, and as I now have 11 million followers over here (thank you btw, how effing cool) I thought it was important for me to share a little bit of my journey with mental health in the hope that it might educate, inspire or encourage some of you. Mental health problems are very common and include conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, anorexia, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, bulimia, depression, hyperactivity, insomnia, mania, narcolepsy, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, paranoia, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), schizophrenia, stress, suicide and Tourette's.

"Lack of awareness and general mental health literacy also means that many people don't feel confident in knowing what to do if someone is experiencing mental distress or is in a mental health crisis situation".

In recent weeks, highly regarded public figures have come out in support of mental health, most notably Prince Harry and co with their recent Heads Together #oktosay campaign. "The single best thing we can do to bring mental health out of the shadows is talk about it". That is why they will sometimes say things like, 'Look on the bright side, ' 'You need a good kick up the backside!' or 'You're a Christian - you should be joyful.' It is easier to be patient and kind when you have some insight.

The event is coordinated by the Mental Health Foundation in the United Kingdom, and this year's theme is "Surviving or Thriving", in which the foundation reports that only a small minority of people (13%) report living with high levels of good mental health.

US President Trump to receive Russian FM Lavrov in White House
The stigma of the Russian Federation investigations has been impossible for Mr Trump to shake. The would-be safe zones would not cover areas where the US -led coalition is fighting IS.

Stigma is just one facet of why we are unable to identify and understand mental illness.

The team receives referrals from people who work closely with children and young people, such as Global Positioning System, school nurses, health visitors, social workers, specialist staff within schools, and paediatricians.

Mr Burns said discussing with Port Lincoln service providers highlighted a particular issue, the need for a structured peer workforce bridging community groups and health services. In Oklahoma - and nationwide - mental illness is deeply linked to substance abuse issues within the population. So we've created this event to say 'this is what City & Hackney are doing, this is what we want you to be part of, and we want you to know what's going on in the borough'. "Recovery is possible, and they are not alone". Do not be scared to approach your GP who will be able to give you some advice and refer you to the Community Mental Health Team at Coaling Island.

Recently, the Mental Health Foundation and employee benefit specialist, Unum, produced the Added Value Report which surveyed employees to assess mental health as a workplace asset. "People of all income levels, gender, race, religion; they all struggle with the same problems, and they would all benefit from early diagnosis and treatment". How many are doing this effectively and what support are they offering?

Offering greater understanding, empathy and kindness to those suffering can help us reconfigure this topic in a fundamental way, and lead all of us to find ways to thrive, whatever our age or circumstance.
