He said the burden of mental illness had risen "dramatically" worldwide in the past 25 years, partly due to societies ageing and more children surviving into adolescence, yet "no country is investing enough" to tackle the problem.

Substance use disorders are more common for younger people (13%) than other age groups, while anxiety disorders are more common in people aged 35-44 (18%).

Mental health is a critical component of health and that is why health is referred to as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, according to WHO.

Every single person has mental health.

It's a sobering thought; One in every five Americans is believed to be suffering from a mental health issue like depression or anxiety.

A combination of issues is usually the biggest contributors to mental health among young people, says Chambers.

Jamie Matsell, General Manager at Xercise4Less Sheffield, said: "The physical benefits of exercise are well-known, but World Mental Health Day is the ideal opportunity to shine a light on the positive effects exercise has on our mental wellbeing".

TV presenter Anna Richardson and former Labour spin doctor and author Alastair Campbell feature in the campaign among others who have faced mental health difficulties.

Community is calling on employers across the United Kingdom to run mental health first aid training for employees.

It is being promoted to adults across the Midlands, and is being supported by a range of public sector, charity, and commercial partners. The theme for this year is "Young people and mental health in a changing world".

The survey provides further evidence of a growing crisis in children's mental health, Dr Antonis Kousoulis, Associate Director at the Mental Health Foundation said: "Nearly half a million children in the country have no one to speak to at school when they are experiencing feelings of sadness or worry".

Dr Mikkelsen notes that "the area of mental health is still misunderstood, but now there is momentum and the highest possible recognition of mental health".

"Our ambitious Mental Health Strategy sets out improvements in early intervention and will ensure better access to services".
