United Kingdom workers turn to tech to help look after their mental health

The personal reason why I’m fighting to get mental health first aiders in the workplace

When a young person often feels anxious or worried; has frequent stomachaches or headaches with no physical explanation; experiences difficulty with sleep, loses interest in things they once enjoyed doing; isolates themselves; has trouble in school or their grades begin to decline; feels exhausted, lacks energy or is disconnected; fears weight gain, constantly exercises, or develops unusual food consumption; or engages in risky, destructive behavior, including drinking, smoking, or other drug use.

In addition, children with depression and anxiety are the most likely to be left undiagnosed.

The people who work at Taranaki DHB are usually busy taking care of others.

"All of these issues are affected by hereditary and biological factors but environmental and psychological influences play a big role as well", added Aamnah.

World Mental Health Day is organised by the World Health organisation and aims to raise awareness around mental health issues.

"What is especially compelling" says Dr Kathy Modecki, "is that increases in poor sleep, in turn, led to rises in depressed mood and externalizing behaviours, and declines in self-esteem and coping one year later". The country also ranks highly for anxiety with 4.1 per cent of people admitting to a problem.

"Suicide is a leading cause of death in young people".

After losing his fellow friend and co-worker to mental health issues this past June, Patrick Cosvy of Champaign's II-VI EpiWorks, showed his support for NAMI Sunday afternoon with a small donation. "Often this growth is hindered by the issues and is also a constant fight between being a teenager and being an adult; it is a tough time", he says. Such children develop a strong need to remain connected to the phone or playing games, said the doctor.

Debbie Adwent, operations manager for St John Ambulance, said: "We believe these results reflect the experiences of the wider workforce and urge employers to take the mental health and wellbeing of their workforce seriously".

"A long and wandering nerve, the vagus nerve is made of both motor and sensory fibers and connects the brain stem to organs and systems, including the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and female sex organs, as well as linking the neck, ears and tongue to the brain", explained Dr Adatia.

One in six people are aged 10-19 years. Lack of usual support network of family and friends could be a reason. Even as most expatriates call the UAE their second home, not many have a healthy social network that can help unwind.

The event runs alongside the Open Shutters exhibition in Gallery Oldham, a collection of 32 photographic portraits celebrating people who have taken strength and positivity from their mental health journeys. Adolescence and the early years of adulthood are a time of life when many changes occur, For many, these are exciting times but they can also be times of stress and apprehension.
