According to World Health Organization, half all the mental illnesses begins by age 14 and often goes undetected and untreated. You had to be an active listener, know how to assess non-verbal body language, and exercise other psycho-social skills to help ensure clear communication contributes to a patient recovery. In addition to shining a light on mental illness, the week also offers an opportunity for behavioral health nurses to reflect on the impact they have in the lives of the people they serve.

Mental Health Australia is leading the World Mental Health Day campaign in Australia. "Human rights violations and abuses persist in many countries, with large numbers of people locked away in mental institutions or prisons, or living on the streets, often without legal protection", it says.

News.com.au editor-in-chief Kate de Brito said: "We are seeing these stories every day and the statistics are horrifying".

But if things are really going to change, if people are going to feel comfortable to get the help they need, and services are going to become accessible to everybody no matter what wage they're on, the recognition needs to continue all throughout the year - not just today. It is only when we understand the problem better that we will be able to solve it.
