Race, awareness sessions held to mark World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day 2019 Mental Health Awareness

"It's easy to overlook symptoms of mental illness and examples of mental health when we're watching a show", explains Dr. Ali Mattu. Today, many countries are observing World Mental Health Day; this year's theme aptly focuses on suicide prevention.

The minister maintained that trend of suicide was highly deplorable in the world especially in Pakistan.

The research also revealed the true toll mental health problems take on productivity. The comedy special offers candid reflections on Gulman's struggles with depression through stand-up and short documentary interludes that provide insight into his mental health journey.

Last year, drinks trade charity The Benevolent carried out a similar survey, and found that almost half (48%) of industry workers thought discussing their mental health problems would damage their careers.

"The Alliance is further calling on government to implement a National Policy and Action Plan on mental health in general and Suicide Prevention, in particular, to guide and consolidate the concerted efforts needed to address the mental health challenges of our nation". Reportedly, some 13,000 people commit suicide every year in Pakistan, and more than 95pc of them suffer from mental disorders. Among the survey responders, 61 percent said that their productivity at work was affected by their mental health.

Mental health conditions appear commonest among younger workers - with more than a third (36 per cent) of those aged between 16 and 24 saying they now have one, well above the 27 per cent of the age group with the next highest incidence, workers aged 25-34.

Those warnings are also usually left to ratings boards like the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) or British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), with more nuanced information being down to the production studio itself - such as the content warnings introduced for 13 Reasons Why, a year after the show first landed, or the disclaimer at the start of Netflix's new show, The Politician, "for those who struggle with their mental health" (in image below). Nearly half (47 per cent) of men with a mental health condition have never raised it at work, compared to 43 per cent of female sufferers. Two thirds (67 per cent) of employers say they would feel confident about approaching staff they feel might be at risk and offering support.
