Mental health issues signify disorders that affect mood, thinking and behaviour of an individual due to depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and even eating disorders and addictive behaviours.

According to the findings, there were 118,851 youth who visited an emergency department with a mental health concern during the five-year study period (2010-2014).Of these, 1.8 percent (2,194) were refugees and 5.6 percent (6,680) were non-refugee immigrants.

On October 10 every year, the world observes the day to draw attention to the importance of mental health. More shockingly, 60% of respondents believed that people with mental illness "should have their own groups to avoid contaminating healthy people" and 68% believe that they "should not be given any responsibility".

"One in four of us will have to deal with a mental health condition at some point in our lives" Gaga and Ghebreyesus said, adding that suicide is "the second leading cause of death globally among 15-29 year olds".

Along with highlighting mental illness in young people, the Lancet report recommended government's be held accountable and approach mental health from a human rights basis. "It's time we should change the perception", adds Dr Desousa.

Half of all mental illness begins by the age of 14, but most cases go undetected and untreated.

The harmful use of alcohol and illicit drugs among adolescents were also identified as contributing to risky behaviours such as violence, unsafe sex and dangerous driving.

In a new op-ed for the Guardian published on Tuesday, Gaga, along with World Health Organization director general Tedros Adhanom, urged readers to confront the shame and stigma that keeps people from speaking out about mental health.

"From the study that we did previous year, over 69% of people felt like their managers had responded negatively when they did disclose their mental illness, which I think affects people coming out". "And we can give the mental wellbeing of our children the priority it so profoundly deserves". This is to clear existing confusion in the public about the various psychological professionals and services they provide and to facilitate appropriate access for people with mental health needs. We have commenced the construction of primary health centres across the state to reach all Edo people and residents irrespective of where they reside. But we want to see more.
