Over a third of respondents (35 per cent) identify themselves as suffering or having suffered from SAD - a type of depression that becomes more severe in winter.

According to the report, mental disorders are rising in every single country in the world and will cost the world's economy $16 trillion by 2030. These are just a few of the challenges of working with behavioral health clients that makes mental health nursing such a fascinating and rewarding career.

Recent data from the Ghana Health Service has revealed that about 41 percent of Ghanaians have some form of psychological illness.

More than a quarter (26%) of people aged 16-24 years and a similar proportion (25%) of people aged 25-34 years had a 12-month mental disorder, compared with 6% of those aged 75-85 years old.

Mental health is defined as a person's emotional, psychological and social well-being.

The numbers of young people, including children under the age of 14, presenting and dealing with mental illnesses is rising. However, there are simply no other accessible options.

Chance, who recently pledged $1 million to mental health resources in his hometown of Chicago, wrote on Twitter that friends and family members need to realize that their expectations are unlikely to match the progress of their loved ones that are dealing with mental illness. "Young people that we're seeing are going through adolescence, they are going through the demands and challenges of puberty and that can affect their thought processes and how they rationalise things out".

Mental Health Australia is leading the World Mental Health Day campaign in Australia.
