Premier marks World Health Day

He said nobody would want to come out in this part of the world to report being depressed, hence the need to encourage people to talk about their conditions and best ways they could be addressed by the society.

The World Health Day is celebrated on April 7 each year to commemorate the establishment of the World Health Organisation.

The day is held to mark WHO's founding, and seen as an opportunity by the organisation to draw worldwide attention to a subject of major importance to global health each year. Acharya further said that at worst, depression could lead to self inflected injuries and suicide.

"The day's slogan is "Let's talk" and we are pleased to have provided reliable statistics as the basis for that global discussion about mental health". The above underscores the importance of overcoming this challenge.

"A depressed individual might experience feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt, with a difficulty in concentration, difficulty in decision-making, and recurrent thoughts of death", said Parikh.

Airbnb also would not confirm the host's name. "I've been here since I was three years old". "What they see is that I'm Asian". The shocking comments, including calling Suh a "con artist", immediately reduced the young woman to tears.

Once, that's done, Epicenter will know their employees every move, from how long they work to how long they're in the bathroom. A possible new development is their mention that a Belgian company has also offered such microchip implants for its employees.

Trump, Xi meet again - in shadow of missile strikes on Syria
Trump accepted Xi's invitation to China later this year, state news agency Xinhua news agency cited officials as saying on Friday. Trump has threatened to use trade to try to force China to exert influence over Pyongyang.

The Ministry also advises persons who are suffering from depression to visit the Mental Health Clinics across the country to seek free psychological services, counselling, and treatment.

Subramaniam said this year's World Health Day theme underscores the importance of addressing depression, reducing the stigma surrounding it, and encouraging more people to get help. It's also important to ensure them that depression is a common illness, and isn't a sign of weakness. This number is an increase of 18 percent between 2005 and 2015.

"These new figures are a wake-up call for all countries to re-think their approaches to mental health and to treat it with the urgency that it deserves", WHO Director-General Margaret Chan said in a news release. On a more personal level, depression is not often discussed among family and friends because of a strong preference towards dealing with issues themselves rather than burdening others with their problem. "There is a clear distinction between a transient sense of depression which anybody could feel in case of work-related stresses or death of a dear person, and the illness that could affect a person for a long time". The study calculated treatment costs and health outcomes in 36 low-, middle- and high-income countries for the 15 years from 2016 to 2030.

World Health Organization says people who suffer from depression do not seek treatment because of lack of support and the fear of stigma, so there is a need to address issues around prejudice and discrimination.
