The new strategy's aim is to help produce "a positive mental health environment" for British Olympic and Paralympic athletes. It added, recovery-oriented community mental health services are inaccessible to the overwhelming majority of the global population, and inpatient care, including emergency care and long-term social care, is dominated by large institutions or prisons.

Half of all mental illness begin by the age of 14 years, but most cases go undetected and untreated, with serious long-term consequences for mental health, it said.

Holding its first-ever summit on mental health today to mark World Mental Health Day, the British government announced the appointment of Jackie Doyle-Price as ministerial lead for suicide prevention.

"Even when treatment is sought, its quality is poor - the World Mental Health Surveys reported that one in five people with depressive disorder received minimally adequate treatment in high-income countries, dropping to just one in 27 in LMICs (low and middle income countries)", the report said.

Parents who are anxious about their children's mental wellbeing can call YoungMinds' parent helpline on 0808 802 5544 between 9.30am and 4pm Monday to Friday.

Chance's tweet drew praise from others on Twitter, with many expressing thanks for his empathy.

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.

Tufton said that there is need for people to recognise the symptoms and signs of persons who may be mentally ill and to support and give help where necessary to those affected.

Against this background, Wheeler said greater efforts must be made to "help young people build mental resilience". The focus on mental health should be no different and every year 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem.

Public Health England (PHE) is encouraging adults in the Midlands to look after their mental health as they do their physical health, through its new Every Mind Matters campaign.

"As a government, we have delineated our health system for easy appreciation of the roles required by all stakeholders in the sector".

'As we watch the news, scroll the internet and talk to family and friends around the world, it's apparent that instability, violence and constant traumatic events are becoming daily occurrences, ' said WFMH president Professor Alberto Trimboli.
