Young people and mental health in a changing world 

October 10th is World Mental Health Awareness Day

A healthy person isn’t just one without any physical ailments or diseases. A healthy person is one who is sound not just physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually. A person’s mental health depends on his or her state of mind.

According to World Health Organisation(WHO), changes in mental state occur in adolescence and the early years of adulthood due to change in schools, jobs, cities, etc. Though this period is exciting for most people, there are others who deal with stress and anxiety during this time. If the depression is not recognised and managed, it can lead to mental illness.
