The conference was filled with valuable information that is extremely helpful to those in the field of helping with mental disorders. There is a need for these types of conferences which help those who are in attendance, to understand the issues that only those in the field can speak about and elaborate on, due to their experiences with mental health through their prospective occupations.

One of the biggest contributors for poor healthcare is the stigma against mental health. This stigma allows healthcare providers to view those with a mental illness as having low relevance, thus creating disinclination towards providing adequate resources and/or care. This negative stance, based on misinformation and prejudice creates those that have a mental illness to lose their self confidence. Because of this loss, people with mental illness decide not to contribute to their health or livelihood. In the past fifty years, many advances have been made in mental healthcare. However, with the attached stigma, many people choose to not seek out treatment.
During my time in university, I was very involved in extra-curricular activities that focused on supporting my fellow students. I was an active member and volunteer of the Acadia Mental Health society and I developed a student-run personal support line (PSL). Working with these organizations, I got to see first-hand the impact we can all have in helping to change the way people think about mental health by increasing mental health awareness, providing
There are 5 components of the Mental Health Services Act. The first, community services and support is set up to focus on the community and their well being while providing their services to the mentally ill. The second, prevention and early intervention allow MHSA to give their service to people to promote wellness in a community, to foster health to those in need, and to prevent suffering from untreated mental illness. Innovation is the third component which bumps up the quality of service MHSA gives and can even provide service to people that don’t deserve the help.
Providing an affordable mental health facility here in Muskingum County is our long term goal. In order to reach our long term goal we came up with a couple short term goals.

After Newtown there were many questions being asked what can we do to help our children who are suffering from mental health issues? How can we help families with children whom suffer from the disease? What forms of access to resources within their communities is available to them? Mental health has significantly changed the face of our society, it has shown the world, it has many faces from children to adults. We are all subjects of some type of mental health and having the proper system in place with the proper funding is very important to help those who do not have proper health care.

After Bell Let’s Talk day the roar of the crowds began to die down and soon people forgot about the struggle of mental health all over again. We need more than one day a year to have this discussion be raised. I propose we dedicate an entire month to the struggle of mental health. There are awareness months for cancer and other illnesses so why not mental health awareness month? It’s just as important as any other illness today. About 4000 deaths a year in Canada are suicides. Suicide is the leading cause of death in people ages 15-24 in Canada, we cannot let this statistic go
I am Lily Moulin a sophomore at New Albany High School I'm writing this letter to inform you about spreading awareness of mental health. In my English class we Read a book called challenger deep that was about a teenagert named caden who struglled with a mental illness. This was one of my favorite books because it was the most relatable book this year. Mental illness is something everyone knows about but not many people understand it. I thinks something that could be improved about new albany and keeping it healthy is raising awareness about mental health, how to recognize it, deal with it, and how to get better. Many kids just like caden in the book I read deal with mental illness but struggle to realize it or to even get help. Also many people
In our society, people have trouble understanding or let alone believing in the idea of a "mental illness". I want to make the problem of mental disorders to be known and made understandable. The more people who are educated about these illnesses can use their knowledge and help others who are affected.
