Mental Health Experts Challenge Political Leaders to Take Action at World Summit




|| October 14: 2018: London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine News || ά. Researchers from the Centre for Global Mental Health:CGMH have welcomed the commitments made by political leaders at the world’s first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit but warn these statements must be met with action. CGMH, a partnership between the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine:LSHTM and King’s College London, participated in this week’s first-ever Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London.

The Summit, scheduled to coincide with World Mental Health Day, brought together political leaders, innovators, experts by experience, policymakers and civil society to agree a global declaration on mental health. One in four people will experience mental ill-health at some point in their lives, costing the global economy an estimated $16 trillion in lost economic output in the years 2010 to 2030. Of this, $07 trillion will come from the economies of low and middle income countries. Despite this, however, mental health receives only 0.4% of development assistance for health and people experiencing mental ill-health are frequently excluded from development interventions.

A new Lancet Commission on Global Mental Health and Sustainable Development launched at the Summit warns that without global action on mental health, commitments made by the United Nations, including, the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals can not be met. The Commissioners argue that while mental health and well-being is explicitly mentioned under SDG three, mental health is relevant to all the SDGs and requires a co-ordinated response from all sectors to promote mental health, prevent mental ill-health and provide care across the life-course.

Dr Julian Eaton, the Co-director of CGMH and Assistant Professor at LSHTM, was one of the Commissioners. He said, “The Commission’s seven recommended actions include reframing mental health as a key contributor to global development, establishing mental health as a pillar of Universal Health Coverage, placing people affected by mental ill health at the centre of issues, that affect them and investing far, far more in mental health.

These are imperative, if, we are to reverse increasing rates of mental ill health, reduce the huge impact of suicide around the world, improve coverage of effective care and promote human rights to improve quality of life of those affected by mental ill health.”

Writing in a linked commentary for The Lancet Commission, Professor Peter Piot, the Director of the London School of Hygiene an Tropical Medicine commented on the need to act. He said, “The report provides critical insight into how the global mental health agenda should evolve in response to the SDGs. It is time for the global health and development communities to afford global mental health the attention and priority it deserves. Now, it is up to us to act.”

The Centre for Global Mental Health is a centre of excellence in global mental health research actively working in more than 30 countries. CGMH, also, jointly leads the Mental Health Innovation Network:MHIN, operated in partnership with the World Health Organisation. It is a community of mental health researchers, practitioners and policymakers and has compiled case studies of 180 innovations in mental health, serving over 5,000 members from around the world.

Commending the pledges made and reaffirmed by political attendees at the Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit meeting, CGMH members highlighted the need to translate research and innovation into policy and practice.

Dr Eaton said, “Although, mental illness accounts for around 10% of global burden of disease, national budgets routinely underfund mental health. It’s vital that the commitments made by political leaders at this week’s Summit generate concrete policy change and increases in investment, to ensure a radical, desperately-needed, new approach to mental health is adopted globally.”.:::ω.

Parents Carers and Guardians Should Take Note and Act: The Whole Day Matters for the Cognitive Development in Children




|| October 01: 2018: University of Ottawa News || ά. In a new study, researchers at the University of Ottawa and CHEO Research Institute have found that children aged nine and 10, who meet recommendations in the Canadian 24-hour Movement Guidelines for physical activity, screen time and sleep time, have superior global cognition. The results were published in The Lancet Child and Adolescent Health journal. Researchers from the CHEO Research Institute's Healthy Active Living and Obesity:HALO group used data from the US National Institutes of Health:NIH-funded Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development:ABCD study, more than 4,500 US children aged nine and 10.

The study team looked at the cognition of children compared to their physical activity levels, recreational screen time use and sleep time.  When children met the recommendations for these, they were found to have higher measures of cognition. Cognition was measured six ways: language abilities, episodic memory, executive function, attention, working memory and processing speed, using the Youth NIH ToolBox. "When we looked at the ABCD data, we saw clearly that the whole day matters for children's cognitive health." says Dr. Jeremy Walsh, the Lead Author of the study, formerly post-doctoral fellow at the CHEO Research Institute and currently a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Post-Doctoral Fellow at University of British Columbia, Okanagan.

"The greatest benefits for cognition were, when children met the screen time, plus sleep time recommendations or the screen time recommendations alone. But, the more recommendations a child met, the more positive their global cognition." The 24-hour Movement Guidelines were developed by the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology, with leadership from HALO and are the first guidelines to incorporate movement recommendations for a child's whole day.

In children aged five to 13 years, the guidelines recommend, at least, 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity, no more than two hours of daily recreational screen time and nine to 11 hours of uninterrupted sleep. The study shows that only half of children were meeting the sleep time recommendation, 36% met the screen time recommendation and only 17% met the physical activity recommendation.

"The shift in the lifestyle behaviours of children towards low physical activity, a reduction in sleep and ubiquitous screen time use, may, pose a threat to cognitive development." says Dr Mark Tremblay, the Senior Scientist with the CHEO Research Institute, Professor of Paediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ottawa and Senior Author of the paper. "We need to be doing more to encourage behaviours, that promote healthy activity throughout the whole day.

There is a positive relationship among childhood global cognition, future academic success and lower all-cause mortality. Meeting the recommendations in the 24-hour Guidelines sets kids up for a lifetime. If, kids aren't meeting the recommendations, their healthy development could be at risk."

The ABCD is a 10-year longitudinal, observational study investigating brain development in US children. Data were collected on more than 4,500 US children aged nine and 10 years old at 20 study sites across the country. :::ω.

Striking Increase in Mental Health Conditions in Children and Young People




|| September 16: 2018: University of Exeter News || ά. The proportion of children and young people saying they have a mental health condition has grown six fold in England over two decades and has increased significantly across the whole of Britain in recent years, according to new research. In 1995, just 0.8% of 04-24 year olds in England reported a long-standing mental health condition. By 2014 this had increased to 04.8%. Looking across England, Scotland and Wales using data between 2008 and 2014, reports of a mental health condition in England and Scotland and reports of treatment for one in Wales, grew by 60%, 75% and 41% respectively.

That’s according to the first national-level study in over a decade to investigate trends in mental health problems in children and young people in the UK. Published on September 11 in the Psychological Medicine journal, the study is a collaboration between academics at University College London, Imperial College London, University of Exeter and the Nuffield Trust. Researchers analysed data from 140,830 participants, aged between 04 and 24 years, in 36 national surveys in England, Scotland and Wales over time.

Professor Tamsin Ford, of the University of Exeter Medical School, who was involved in the research, said, “This huge increase in child mental health problems reported over two decades is very concerning. We need to understand how much of this increase is down to a rise in the number of cases and how much is the result of greater awareness and less stigma, meaning people are more willing to report it and seek help. Both have a part to play and more awareness could be a good thing as it would mean young people are less likely to experience problems later in life. We have effective treatments, including, cognitive behavioural therapy and family therapy; we need to get much better at getting them to the young people, who need them, as we know that many do not receive the support they need.”

The researchers analysed responses to questions asking children and young people or parents for the 04-12 year age group for a yes:no answer on whether they had any ‘long-standing mental health condition’, any ‘currently treated mental health problem’ in Wales and compared this to general long-standing health conditions, both physical and mental. They, also, looked at questions, where responses indicated emotional or psychological distress.

In an accompanying blog on the Nuffield Trust website, Research Lead Dr Dougal Hargreaves says that these findings could point to a widening gap between the mental health needs of children and young people and the services available. However, he, also, argues that the increase in prevalence tracked in this study suggests a greater willingness among children and young people to open up about mental health issues and a better awareness of mental health.

Key findings include:

Between 1995 and 2014 the proportion of children and young people aged 04-24 in England reporting a long-standing mental health condition increased six fold, meaning that by 2014, almost, one in twenty children and young people in England reported having a mental health condition.

In 2008, when comparable data from the other two countries was available, 03% of 4-24 year olds in England and 03.7% in Scotland said that they had a long-standing mental health condition, with 02.9% of 04-24 year olds in Wales saying that they had received treatment. By 2014 these figures had grown to 04.8% in England, 06.5% in Scotland and 04.1% in Wales.

The age group with the biggest increases were young people aged 16-24, with young people in England almost 10 times more likely to report a long-standing mental health condition in 2014 than in 1995, 0.6 vs. 05.9%.

Young boys aged 04-12 were consistently more likely to report a long-standing mental health condition than young girls. This was true across all countries. There was less of a consistent gender pattern in the 12-15 and 16-24 age groups. Over the corresponding time period, the prevalence of total long standing conditions, both physical and mental, decreased slightly in England, 20.3 to 19.5%,, increased slightly in Scotland, 17.6% to 22.0% and was broadly unchanged in Wales, 13.1% vs. 13.5%.

Long-term trends in reported symptoms of mental health problems as opposed to reports of a long-standing condition, showed no consistent evidence of an increase in emotional distress. However, the most recent evidence, from 2011-2014, showed concerning early signs of worsening emotional or psychological distress among young adults. For example, the odds of reporting above-threshold symptoms of emotional distress increased by 15% per year among young adults in Scotland.

Commenting on the findings, Dr Dougal Hargreaves of Imperial College London and a Visiting Research Analyst at the Nuffield Trust, said, “We know that there is, already, a growing crisis in the availability of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, with many more children and young people needing treatment than there are services to provide it. Our study suggests that this need is likely to continue to grow in future. Without more radical action to improve access to and funding for CAMHS services, as well as, a wider strategy to promote positive mental health and wellbeing, we, may be, letting down some of the most vulnerable in society.

But it’s not all bad news. The increase in reports of long-standing mental health conditions, may, also, mean that children and young people are more willing to open up about their mental health, suggesting that we have made some progress in reducing the stigma associated with mental ill health.”:::ω.

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine MSc in Global Mental Programme Gets Funding to Train a New Generation of Mental Healthcare Professionals Particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa




|| August 11: 2018: London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine News || ά. Over the next five years, the Johnson and Johnson Scholarship Fund will provide 18 people from low and middle income countries:LMICs the opportunity to join the MSc Global Mental Health programme. Delivered through the Centre for Global Mental Health, co-hosted by London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine:LSHTM and King’s College London, the course is a one-year rigorous programme of study in global mental health research, policy and practice, with a focus on LMICs.

Mental health disorders account for an estimated 10% of the total global burden of disease, with Schizophrenia impacting 23 million people around the globe. Approximately, three quarters of people suffering from mental illness live in LMICs, where many lack access to quality mental healthcare. In Sub-saharan Africa there are fewer than one mental healthcare professional per 100,000 people. Accessing mental health services within local communities is known to have a positive impact on patient outcomes and overall well-being, so there is an urgent need to boost the provision of mental healthcare services in the region.

Professor Peter Piot, the Director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said, “We are delighted to be partnering with Johnson and Johnson on this important new scholarship scheme. Mental health is an often-neglected area of health, that represents the leading cause of disability worldwide. Stigma is a major issue, often, stopping people accessing treatment but a wider problem exists.

In many parts of Sub-saharan Africa there is no or only a very limited, mental health service to seek. After receiving the highest standard of training, this new wave of mental health professionals will return home with the skills and knowledge, that could make a real difference to the lives of people with mental health problems.”

This collaboration forms part of Johnson and Johnson’s new partnership with the Government of Rwanda, which aims to significantly strengthen and expand access to quality mental health care in the country. This demonstration pilot for Sub-saharan Africa aims to show that it is possible to apply an affordable, scalable quality care model for the treatment of severe mental illness, specifically, Schizophrenia in LMICs. 

Mr Paul Stoffels, M.D, the Vice-Chairman of the Executive Committee and Chief Scientific Officer, Johnson and Johnson, said, “Mental illness is a growing global challenge, that is having a devastating impact on individuals, families and communities, especially, in low-resource settings and urgently needs our attention.

With over 60 years of experience supporting those impacted by mental illness, we are committed to expanding access to transformational mental health innovations to positively impact people’s lives. By gathering critical data through this pilot, we aspire to change the trajectory of mental health prevention, treatment and care in Sub-saharan Africa and beyond. :::ω.

A Human's Health and Well Being Means the Health and Well Being of Mind Body and Soul For Wherever the Humans are They are Always Being Mind Body and Soul


|| May 05: 2018: Michelle Chance Writing || ά. Staff rarely feel sorry for their line managers, so employees will be shocked to learn that the forgotten generation when it comes to looking after their wellbeing and taking active steps to protect their mental health are those in mid-ranking or senior managerial positions and partners in professional services firms. A type personalities are most attracted to these managerial roles but they are significantly more likely than other personality types to be adversely affected by mental health issues and they are the least likely to admit it and seek the help that they need. This is further borne out by the fact that the Office of National Statistics' Opinions And Lifestyle Survey showed on May01, 2018 that high earners are far more likely to drink alcohol than those in manual jobs.

Finance workers, lawyers and doctors are among those classified as higher earning managerial and professional occupations. Hazardous drinking among those aged 45 plus in this higher earning category has increased significantly since 2005. Line managers are meant to be responsible for spotting the signs of early mental health issues in their team members but who takes responsibility for the line manager’s:partner's mental health and wellbeing? All too often, sadly, the answer is no one. If, a senior individual is going through a life changing event, such as, divorce, death or terminal illness of a close family member, someone in their organisation should be tasked with recognising that these are exceptionally stressful situations and ensuring that they receive the support they need, as these individuals are statistically the least likely to ask for help for fear of being viewed as weak.

They are of the stiff upper lip generation, who tend not to share their emotions in the workplace, as they feel it is unprofessional to do so. Conversely, vulnerability is viewed as a sign of strength and authenticity contributing to an honest and open workplace culture by Generation X and millennials.

It is positive and encouraging that younger generations in the workplace view seeing their psychologist:psychiatrist:counsellor regularly, in, almost, the same vein as seeing their personal trainer. A healthy mind contributes to a healthy body and one can not, truly, be had without the other. Fitness incorporates mental, as well as, physical strength and wellbeing. Just look at the popularity of yoga, pilates, meditation, mindfulness classes and retreats. Seeing a psychologist does not insinuate that there is something wrong with an individual and, often, it is a preventative measure to ensure ongoing positive mental health. It's akin to having a check-up, like a car has an MOT to ensure that it is firing on all cylinders.

My son, who is of primary school age, suffers from severe allergies and has annual check-ups and skin-prick tests at hospital. I had not, really, given the potential psychological aspects of his allergies much thought, until I received a call from the hospital's psychologist recently inviting my son, my husband and I to attend a workshop for children and parents of children with severe allergies to discuss the anxiety, that, may, accompany their allergies, the fear of being different, standing out from their friends and positive coping mechanisms for this. This was reinforced to me, when my son explained how upset and anxious he was about having to carry his Epipens and Antihistamine medication with him at all times during a recent school outdoor pursuits trip.

My daughter's senior school has an on-site counsellor and the pupils can and do regularly self-refer themselves to the counsellor to discuss any concerns they, may have, on a confidential basis. The parents, however, find this much harder to cope with than the children, particularly, the fact that their children are talking about their emotions to a stranger and not them and that they are unaware of the detail of what is being discussed in the counselling sessions. Talking openly about their emotions and learning how to process and deal with them is normal for many senior school age children and it should be for our generation, too. There is a lot we can learn from our children and millennials in this regard.

Measures, also, need to be taken to clamp down against and stamp out isolating and excluding behaviour, bullying, discriminatory and offensive comments amongst managers at the same:similar grade and level as each other, as this is something organisations struggle to deal with at the mid-management ranks:senior levels. However, it significantly and detrimentally impacts on the mental health and wellbeing of those at:near the top levels of management, who are less likely to feel able to speak out against it, when it is happening to them, rather than to junior team members whom they manage and feel an obligation to protect.

Workplaces have taken a lot of positive steps to encourage wellbeing and to attempt to normalise and de-stigmatise mental health issues, in the same way as physical medical conditions in the workplace but the missing link and forgotten generation in the workplace, which needs to be urgently addressed is the mental health and well-being of those in mid and senior managerial positions. Managers can, only, look after the wellbeing of their team members properly, if, they themselves have good mental, as well as, physical health.

Regine Humanics Foundation Begins Its Journey Today: The Humanion Is Now A Regine Humanics Foundation Publication


|| April 06: 2018 || ά. The Humanion was first published on September 24, 2015 and has been run, since that day, on a complete voluntary basis without any 'formal' or 'constituted' manner or form and, it was run on as a Human Enterprise, which is an idea of Humanics, in which, ownership is replaced by belongingship and, thus, in a Humanical Society, no one owns anything but everyone belongs to the whole as the whole belongs to everyone lawfully and equally and, it neither believes in nor makes money but human utilities, needs, aspirations, creativity, imagination and dreams are served without money, where everyone works and creates for all others as all others create and work for all others, thus, bringing in meaning and purpose to life along with it come natural justice, equality and liberty, that establish a true civilisation within the Rule of Law. And in one word, this system of human affairs management is called, Humanics and a society that runs itself in humanics is called a humanical society. Today, we have begun the process of 'constituting' this Human Enterprise, which does not exist in the current system, but the next closest thing to it, that exists in the UK Law is Social Enterprise. Therefore, today, Friday, April 06, 2018, we are beginning Regine Humanics Foundation, that is the 'Agency', that will lead, run, manage and develop everything, that The Humanion has been trying to do.

Regine Humanics Foundation is established by the Thinker, Author, Poet, Novelist, Playwright, Editor of The Humanion, Festival Director of London Poetry Festival and a Humanicsxian: hu: maa: neek: tian: One, that believes in, lives and exists by Humanics, Mr Munayem Mayenin, of London, England, United Kingdom. Mr Mayenin says, ''Humanics is a vision; people, may, call it, utopia, we, call it our Humanicsovicsopia; Humanics. Humanics is our philosophy, our faith, our conviction, our resolution, our way of existing, thinking, being and doing: to seek and try to do so in the determination that all we must do and be is to exist to advance the human condition. People, readers and agencies and organisations, from all across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the whole of the United Kingdom and Australasia, Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, from all walks and strata of life, have supported our endeavours, supported The Humanion and The Humanion Team, who volunteered their time to run things, since the beginning of The Humanion and long before that, when other things, that are now part of The Foundation, were developing. Nothing has changed in terms of the nature and value of what we have been seeking to do.''

''But the founding of The Foundation brings it all in a solid foundation so that we can keep on building this 'vision' so that it keeps on going regardless of who come to take the vision-mission of The Foundation forward. The Foundation runs along with time and along with the flowing humanity. This is the dream, this is the vision, this the hope in founding this Foundation. And, in this, we hope and invite all our readers, supporters, well wishers and all agencies and organisations to support our endeavours to build something, a Human Enterprise, which we are in the process of registering as a Social Enterprise, as a Community Interest Company, working for the common good of the one and common humanity. No one makes or takes profit out of The Foundation, which now runs The Humanion and everything else, that is part of it. The Foundation, once registered, will have an Asset Lock, which means that in any event, should The Foundation dissolve itself, all its existing assets shall go to a similar Social Enterprise. Therefore, we invite everyone to support The Foundation, support The Humanion in whatever way they can. And, there are endless number of ways people and organisations can support The Foundation and The Humanion.'' ::: ω.

Livability: Because It All Adds Up: One Human Soul Alone and Disconnected: Zero: All Human-Souls Connected in One: Infinity


|| January 17: 2018 || ά. It all adds up, this agency says. And, it does; all, literally, adds up: no human soul can exist on its own but that's precisely what dehumanisation wants to do: to separate and tear asunder every single soul from the others, from the rest of humanity to the point that it has no one and has no connection to anyone or anything or any place and, it is, effectively, cut off from the earth, air, water and skies of life: no sustenance is received by this soul, which now is bound to perish away, suffering and paying the price of this all-consuming disconnect. Agencies, that think, they can fix mental health issues with 'devices, contraptions, gadgets and machinations and screaming and shouting out mental health and wearing t-shirt saying mental health, may, continue to do so but mental health is related to, connected with and determined by the quality of real connections, interactions, inter-exchanges and creative correlations, the individuals have with their families, friends, colleagues and fellow humanity, locality, communities and wider society. These, may or may not, have direct medical origin and, often, these are unknown or not yet understood fully or properly, but these conditions will always be impacted and shaped and made worse by the quality of the conditions of all these areas we have mentioned in which the people suffering will live.

Mental health issues are terribly complex and the term itself is a terribly inadequate one to capture its almost infinite range but, despite being taken as a medical issue, it is not just a physiological one so that psychiatry is the branch of medicine, that deals with it, most of these conditions do not have a cure but these are managed and, yet, all of them, are made infinitely more bearable to the sufferers, where they receive the support from a human 'network' of resources, that is comprised with family, friends, colleagues and fellow humans, including, all the agencies, there are, who are there to offer that absolutely vital support. Tablets, capsules and therapies have never been and never will be enough, on their own, to 'deal' with the ever increasing mental illnesses and, as the speed and space of dehumanisation increase, they will impact more and more people in all societies but the sufferers will need both: the medicine part of it and the humanity part of it. This is the view The Humanion sincerely seeks to put forward in terms of mental health.

And none of this is and can, ever, be anything but real. These all have to be as real as this agency, called, Livability: make humans feel respected, valued, supported and cherished and see their mirror image in their reflections. Nothing can ever replace that. Abuse a human soul and you hear this soul scream out in agony as it breaks and responds as a tortured animal but treat it as a human is endowed by mother nature to treat another human, with humanity, dignity, respect, regard, kindness, care and compassion and see how that human soul responds. Livability, a disability charity, that connects people to their communities, have launched ‘Lifting the Lid’ today. For churches, it’s a free study resource to help explore the topics of emotional and mental wellbeing, using the Bible as a guide. And, this agency says a fundamental truth: it exists to connect people with their communities. There is no other alternative but this route: connect every soul to the places they live and the communities they are part of and they are meant to be part of since through these connections to the locality and community the human souls get the connection to the earth, air, water and skies of life from which they gather sustenance. Lifting the lid is intended to help churches engage with the mental health challenges faced by those in their communities. It has been created with small groups in mind, drawing on well-known Bible stories to open up discussions on a key topic.

With one in four people experiencing a mental health problem in the UK each week, Livability sees churches as key to supporting and resourcing their communities effectively. Whilst there are always challenges in funding and training for consistent provision, many churches are doing important and effective work in mental health. A report last year referenced the effectiveness of church mental health work amongst young people and, also, how Christian initiatives can reduce the burden on the NHS or social services, serving a public good'.

The aim with ‘Lifting the Lid’ is to help churches to create listening communities, that are welcoming, understanding and offer ways to participate. ''Even, in the healthiest community, there can be a lot at stake in opening up about mental health. People can sometimes be wary of sharing their experiences or feel that only those with visible difficulties are in need of support. Opening up positive discussions can be challenging, so time has been spent creating studies that navigate this carefully.'' Says Ms Corin Pilling, Community Engagement Director at Livability.

In sharing Biblical examples of those, who encounter ongoing struggles, the studies offer opportunities to share experiences and explore new perspectives. Comprised of six studies, each session offers concrete ways to support people in both church and the neighbourhood, who might be experiencing mental- ill health.

The study has been trialled in the Lichfield Diocese by Mr David Primrose, Social Responsibility Officer. Mr Primrose approached Livability to develop the studies and has been championing their use since their piloting.

Already, passionate about the topic of mental health in churches, he found himself unable to identify a suitable course for a colleague. After approaching Livability’s Head of Church Partnerships, Mr Mat Ray, with the idea to develop some resources, he was soon road-testing a new Livability course in the diocese.

''I remind everyone that those present on the course are people, who are going to change the culture of our churches. If one in four of the general population experiences mental health issues, then in our churches it should be a higher proportion than that. We should be a place where people with mental illness feel comfortable and belong. It is good to challenge any participating church: Don’t we want to be the sort of Christian community, where we draw in, give support, love and care for people, who have mental health issues in their lives?"’

The study was created by Mat Ray, Livability’s Head of Church Partnerships who states, ''At Livability, we’re committed to helping churches increase their ability to be welcoming and healthy places. The majority of us will experience mental distress at some point in our lives and our community response will be key to our recovery.

We believe the studies offer Biblically-based and hopeful response we can all subscribe to. Emotional and mental ill health is an area, that many of us lack confidence in. Whilst churches should never seek to offer medical or professional advice to mental health sufferers, they are in a great position to lift the lid on these areas positively. We have good reason to be hopeful and we have an important part to play in raising awareness.''

Content on the Mental Health has been drawn from the Mental Health Access Pack, which was jointly developed by The Mind and Soul Foundation and Livability.

Mr Mat Ray believes the studies will increase the participants’ ability to engage with greater confidence in these topics. He states, ''It can often be difficult to explore these topics in a way, which feels safe and the studies offer a positive way to do this. Many people have experienced marginalisation as a result of their ill-health and we want to change this. This season of lent offers a great opportunity for us to reflect, and face the challenges of life, as Jesus demonstrates. Our hope is that studies will open up discussions, and in hearing each other’s experience, we can learn to respond positively and find hope in the midst of these challenges.’

The guide is available from Livability’s web site. It is free to download, has six sessions and is designed to be run over six weeks, led by someone, who has spent time becoming familiar with the material. Each session is designed to last 01.5 hours.

School Pupils Work with University Specialists to Promote Mental Health



|| January 11: 2018 || ά. Students from a girls’ grammar school have worked with educational psychologists from the University of Manchester to develop an accessible and appealing mental health strategy for their school. Lecturer in Education and Child Psychology Dr Cathy Atkinson has worked with colleagues, including, Dr George Thomas, a recent Manchester graduate, who is now an honorary lecturer and an educational psychologist working for Bright Futures Educational Trust, to devise the strategy alongside pupils at Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, who act as ‘Wellbeing Ambassadors’ for their fellow students.

The researchers planned sessions using resources, which they thought were visual and appealing, but the Wellbeing Ambassadors had strong views about their relevance to young people and they proposed their own creative and innovative solutions. One of their ideas was an accessible quiz to determine when and how to seek help. The ambassadors consulted with other students and developed their own communications strategy to promote the subject around the school. Dr Atkinson and Dr Thomas are presenting their research at the British Psychological Society’s Division of Educational and Child Psychology annual conference, which is taking place in Brighton, January 11-12.

“Although, there is increasing interest in promoting mental health and wellbeing within education, to date, the voices of young people appear to have been almost completely overlooked in the development of school-based mental health practices.” said Dr Atkinson.

“This is despite increasing focus on young people’s participation and the fact that young people are best positioned to understand the pressures of contemporary society.” she said.

“We understand that recognising the signs associated with mental health problems, intervening to provide early support and signposting to other sources of help are crucial in promoting our students’ ongoing wellbeing.” said Ms Jenny Ogunmyiwa, Vice Principal at Altrincham Grammar School for Girls.

“Our wellbeing ambassadors are working hard in school to ensure that student contributions are used to promote a greater understanding of mental health within the student body and to develop effective mental health support.”

University of Manchester: The University of Manchester, a member of the prestigious Russell Group, is the UK’s largest single-site university with 39,700 students and is consistently ranked among the world’s elite for graduate employability. The University is also one of the country’s major research institutions, rated fifth in the UK in terms of ‘research power’. World-class research is carried out across a diverse range of fields including cancer, advanced materials, addressing global inequalities, energy and industrial biotechnology. No fewer than 25 Nobel laureates have either worked or studied here. It is the only UK university to have social responsibility among its core strategic objectives, with staff and students alike dedicated to making a positive difference in communities around the world. Manchester is ranked 38th in the world in the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2017 and 6th in the UK. The University had an annual income of almost £01 billion in 2015:16.

Royal College of Psychiatrists Launches Advice Pack for Businesses and Employees


|| October 10: 2017|| ά. The Royal College of Psychiatrists has produced a special pack of mental health information for employers and employees to mark World Mental Health Day 2017, which is on October 10. This year’s theme, set by the World Federation for Mental Health, is mental health in the workplace. Hundreds of thousands of workers will experience mental health problems during the course of a year and absences from work due to mental health issues are thought to cost the UK economy £26 billion per year.

The College hopes that businesses, employers and employees will benefit from our award-winning information, which explain how to recognise a possible mental health problem and how best to support those living with mental ill health. The information covers the most common range of conditions, such as, depression, anxiety and sleeping problems. There is, also, information on seasonal affective disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-natal depression and mental health in pregnancy, self-harm and eating disorders, such as, anorexia and bulimia.

The pack, also, covers serious mental illness, such as, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and personality disorders. The President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Professor Wendy Burn, said, “It makes sense for businesses to look after the mental health of their employees. It can make a real difference if they have the right information to hand, if they can say to an employee, who is experiencing a mental health issue, ‘we understand’.

And it can make a difference if they are able to support and are able to direct that person to the right place, where they can get the best advice and help.” The College hopes the pack, may, also, prove useful to organisations, which have frontline staff, who work with vulnerable people.

Professor Burn said, “As well as helping organisations with the duty of care they have to their own staff, we believe the packs will help businesses arm their frontline staff with the appropriate information to help them understand and support customers, who, may, have mental health conditions.”

Employers can find details of and order copies of, the special information pack on the College’s website.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists: The Royal College of Psychiatrists is the main professional body for psychiatrists in the UK. It has a World-wide membership. Providing information about mental ill health is one of the central tasks of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. We believe that everyone needs knowledge to make informed decisions about their health. We, therefore, aim to produce information, which is:

The Royal College of Psychiatrists’ portfolio of mental health information is written by psychiatrists, in collaboration with patients and carers, and reflects the best evidence base at the time of writing. They do not contain the views of any particular individual. The Royal College of Psychiatrists has been certified as a producer of reliable health and social care information by the Information Standard, which assesses information for patients and the public.

The package of 15 of our most popular and relevant mental health titles and covers:

Anorexia and Bulimia
Anxiety, Panic and Phobias
Bipolar Disorder
Coping with a Physical Illness

Imagine and, that what you do, becomes you for as soon as you imagine something it becomes real in your soul. And, here, resides the choice; even with imagination: what to imagine and what not to, what to become and what not to, what to do and what not to. Therefore, imagine love and harmony, joy and warmth, care and compassion, humanity and oneness, humanionship and respect, kindness and grace, togetherness and community, giving and expecting not to receive in return and selflessness and highest of wisdom; if the world does not follow, your soul already has and, you are infinitely enriched by it already. Therefore, imagine! Alphansum Sovereign Necessarius: Munayem Mayenin

So What is Psychology: It is the science, that studies and learns about the part of humanity, that we do not get to see: The Human Mind: Like the physiology, if not looked after well, this human mind falters, breaks and falls ill for it needs 'food and nutrition', that do not come from physicality but are and can only be generated, in addition to keeping the physiology in a balanced state of good health and well being, from and through being positively and actively engaged in the physical reality created by Family, Networks of Wider Families, Networks of Friends, Fellow Learners, Acquaintances and Colleagues, Networks of Communities and the Wider Civic Society: In Short,  healthy human mind is the statement, that says: There exists a civic society, that is capable of supporting, nurturing and sustaining happy, healthy and balanced human mind:

So what is the Formula: The less civic a society is the more mental and psychological damages it inflicts on all human minds, creating and sustaining the entire range of mental health issues. It can be seen as parallel to this sociological and political philosophical formula: A society, where there is hardly any rule of law, creates, sustains and maintains the highest degree, level and magnitude of repression, oppression, exploitation, violence, infringement, transgression, aggression, unrest, agitation, hostility, anger, animosity, suffering and injustices, all of which create and feed the conditions of the highest possible levels of all manners, forms and expressions of 'crimes' and such society simply ceases to be a society but becomes, effectively, a jingoistic jungle, in which all human minds are broken to destruction. There in such a jingoistic jungle, therefore, can not exist happy, healthy, well balanced human mind but the most severely destroyed, broken and devastated one, that can not, ever, be 'mended' back to health. In other words, the closer the human mind is to natural justice the more it will be like itself and the farther it is away from natural justice the less it will be like itself and so far it is unlike itself is the part, that has been broken and, consequently, it has been made ill because of the breakage inflicted on it. Natural justice is what creates the conditions for natural humanity to exist and natural human mind is such a natural thing, that can not exist as it is, when dehumanisation breaks its home and takes its farther and father away from its natural home, from natural justice, tearing it apart as it does so: Psychology of Zoohuman: Munayem Mayenin

Psychology of Zoohuman

An individual human lives and exists in many a unit of institutions, including, an immediate family, a wider network of a wider family, a Core Unit of Friends, a Social Group of Wider Friends and Acquaintances, a local community, a wider community and a society in general added to which because of recent development in technology the virtual reality. The most fundamental of all these are three: the first being the immediate family, the second being the wider network of wider family and the third being the Core Unit of Friends. Unless the individual is well connected to, with a to and fro active, engaged and positive relationship, with all these units and all their members, all of whom are active in the wider positive units, that spread outward, incorporating, all the basic units, than the individual will find it difficult to reach her:his full potentials and face the risks of all forms of shortfalls, including, illnesses of both physical and psychological nature.

Unless an individual is seen as a metaphorical tree: that has two sets of roots, one going up for light, air and space and one going into the depth of the earth for other necessary goodness for life, without which the tree will struggle to survive, will stunt, decay and suffer as it does so until the end: than she:he is not seen as she:he is in 'potential' and this person will face the same fate as that tree, that lacks the two sets of roots. For humans, the first set of roots goes onto the earth of its core family unit, which is based on the earth of the wider units referred to and the other set of roots goes upwards to the wider units of society. With both these sets of roots the individual generates enough sustenance to support, foster, nurture, enhance, empower and create a personal eco-system to create her:his personhood, being, existence, where one is fully equipped to bring about all the potentials one has onto reality.
