A person’s diagnosis may change several times during their life. Some complex conditions are measured by how many people will be given this diagnosis over the course of their lifetime, or in any given year:
Suicidal thoughts and self-harm aren’t mental health diagnoses. But they are related to mental health. Over the course of someone’s lifetime
1 in 5 people have suicidal thoughts
1 in 14 people self-harm
1 in 15 people attempt suicide
Reports suggest that:
Approximately only 1 in 8 adults with a mental health problem are currently getting any kind of treatment.
The most common treatment offered is psychiatric medication
It’s important to know that your identity does not give you mental health problems. Causes of mental health problems can be very complicated. Higher risk for these groups is linked to several factors including:
Facing social inequality and disadvantage
Facing discrimination and social exclusion
Going through traumatic experiences
Difference’s in physical health
