Qatar Airways, in partnership with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), will host a programme of activities and events throughout the month of October created to raise awareness of good mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, as part of World Mental Health Day on Wednesday 10 October 2018.

The move, meant to tackle the tragedy of 4,500 people taking their own lives in England each year, comes on World Mental Health Day. "If we wait until people are adults we have waited too long", she said.

The school environment has a significant impact on a young person's emotional welfare. "In some cases, if not recognised and managed, these feelings can lead to mental illness".

The money could be used to help expand mental health services, as growing evidence suggests overuse of social media can have a damaging effect on children and young people, he said.

And perhaps most important, we can all talk about mental health and suicide openly, honestly and without stigma.

"I will be urging the council to recognise not just the importance of World Mental Health Day, but also its implications - that in order to have a healthy, productive Peterborough, we need to invest in the wellbeing of our citizens, both at a local and national level".

The theme of this year's World Mental health Day is spot on, but the changing world that we need to see is the one that is able to contribute positively to the prevention of difficulties and the development of good mental health in our children and young people. However, the service felt many of these emergency retrievals could be avoided if more appropriate and comprehensive mental health services were available in remote and rural areas. As a mental health nurse, it's just you.

Dagg adds that if people ignore their mental well-being, it could have devastating impacts on their physical health. "Talk through some of the issues cause a lot of the mental health diagnosis's can be processed through medication management, but through process through therapy".
