hi tina ... my daughter is a bipolar disorder survivor ... so, i m now her caregiver... but sometimes i think she is making her condition as a comfortable zone to live without responsibility... am i wrong?

Amazing work ref Friendship bench
Fauzia
01:28:11
Wow, just imagine having to deal with mental health without any support, but having people downplay the severity of what one is actually going through and continually judge you? Kudos to you Sanju...keep up the good work!
Joyce Danquah
01:28:17
Thank God for your life Sanji. No wonder your suicide attempts failed. Humanity needed you.

The story from Zimbabwe... https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20181015-how-one-bench-and-a-team-of-grandmothers-can-beat-depression
Genevieve Partington
01:29:00
Thank you Sanju for sharing your experience, you’ve been very brave and open about it and I’m very appreciative of this ❤️. I also have a relation with schizoaffective disorder. It’s been very difficult. There is a lot of stigma as hé work for a government organisation. Thé excused-duty form shows the hospital he is at which is a psychiatric hospital. It has affected his job so much and I wish there was another way for him.Ghana has made a lot of progress. But more to do.Your initiative is really cool. And I wish we could replicate this in Ghana.
Omolara
01:29:42
sanju, you are a brave person, thanks for sharing and impacting other people.
Charlotte Crowe
01:29:46

Charlotte Crowe
01:33:24
For Christina - In the UK we are tending to see greater stigma among the male population, and this translates into 75% of completed suicides being male - I'd love to know about the intersectionality of gender and mental health stigma in Uganda? You really got me thinking when you said Mums will shield the children if the father has depression but the household comes to a standstill if the mother does...
Anita Arif
01:33:58
thank you, sanju...
Daniel -- United Edge
01:34:03
Thanks you!
Genevieve Partington
01:34:27
Is there a way we can get an excused-duty/sick note? Without having the name of the psychiatric hospital on it? Even the doctor signing it, gives you away. What are other countries doing?
Charlotte Crowe
01:34:40
For Sanju - how do you tackle any barriers of supply and demand? Using your example of ubers - sometimes it's a tricky balance!
Sarah Witts
01:37:09
For all/any panellists - what do you want the world to look like in 100 years' time, in terms of mainstreaming mental health awareness? What's your ideal future?!
Lyda
01:38:13
Thank a lot Sanju for letting us to hear your personal journey that leads to amazing amazing change in the field. I would like to ask when work-induced stress can become a mental health issue. As you rightly pointed out, oftentimes, we could receive judgmental look when we said that we experience stress.
Mercy Mawusi-Koukoyi
01:38:17
Many thanks to all panelists. From your experiences, what can you say are the major factors contributing to stress and mental health challenges among young people - What are the practical discoveries. Thank you.
Trang Đinh
01:38:46
Less suicide, less crime
Charlotte Crowe
01:39:03
So interesting - thanks Christina - love the adapted approaches!
Charlotte Crowe
01:39:17
And come on donors - react!
Fiona Locke
01:40:48
Second Mercy’s question and will add that loneliness is a very widespread issue in this country and there are many NGOs dealing with the results/consequences of this but not so many actually tackling the loneliness ‘epidemic’ itself.
Fauzia
01:42:49
@Chritina, I think the main challenge with women and mental health is the fact that most women would rather suffer in silence than seek help due to stigmatisation. In your line of work, how have you been able to encourage women to open up about their condition and seek help? Secondly, it appears a lot of women may be suffering from eg.post-partum depression unknowingly.How do we get more women to understand issues of mental health disorder and feel confrotable enough to seek help?
Anita Arif
01:42:59
to all the panelists, how is the relationship among body ~ thoughts ~ mind ~ soul ~ spirit in mental health? can you show a diagram of the functions, interaction or network among them?
Teisi Kalamo
01:43:53
I would like to know more about setting up a community based agency that can help people to access quality mental health care. Firstly, we hardly have anything available in this area, in Papua New Guinea. Workplaces are struggling. Communities are struggling. We have churches who play a leading role but more needs to be done in this area here so I am appreciating the sharing from you all.
Hudson Bunjo
01:44:49
Thanks Christina for sharing the Ugandan context about stigma and am happy with your approach (tele therapy) that men are increasingly getting involved in seeking help.
Charlotte Crowe
01:45:43
Agree Hudson! Such a great approach!
Dinnah Nabwire
01:48:58
Hello Christine, just wondering if the tele-access model has been documented for anyone who wants to learn more about how it works? Any additional resources would generally be great. Thanks for the amazing frontline work
Teisi Kalamo
01:49:32
Thank you Christina and Pam.
Sam
01:50:11
@dinnah / @christina would also be interested in these resources

01:50:14
Mental health that people around the world face today due to covid-19 today. That most countries lock down and people just stay at home and work from home and school. in some case many employs lose their job and some students not study well and it makes them stress and get mental illness? what we do to prevent is for the future if things like I said happened for long?
Sam
01:52:55
Is anyone here working on mental health challenges faced by people with disabilities and/or their caregivers? Not necessarily/ only mental impairment as a standalone disability or illness, but persons with disabilities or persons with difficulties in functioning who experience mental health challenges as a result of their difficulties/ disability
Sam
01:53:18
Would be interested to connect!

Bessy
01:56:28
question: what do the panelists believe? that the mental health survivors should start to demystify the stigma? or the workplace should star to demystify the stigma?
Shampa Nath
01:56:31
Our organisation has started to address mental health of deaf children and young people in our South Asia programme. They face a lot of mental health issues of varying degrees of severity because of reasons ranging from challenges of stigma they face, challenges of communication with others, etc. Happy to connect - shampa.nath@deafchildworldwide.org

Yes my son has cerebral palsy and other conditions. And because of this, I do work with persons with disabilities.
