"We need their voices to shape their future in the right way, using their creativity and energy to make change", says Dr Bente Mikkelsen, Director of the Division of Noncommunicable Diseases and Promoting Health through the Life-course at WHO/Europe.

The Prime Minister will also say that "parity of care" is a priority of the NHS long-term plan, which will include "record investment" in mental health.

Theresa May will also appoint the UK's first minister for suicide prevention and £1.8m funding for the Samaritans, as she pledges to "end the stigma that has forced too many to suffer in silence".

This research was done by the National Youth Mental Health Foundation headspace, which looks at the mental health and wellbeing of over 4000 young people.

Many more people - one in four, in fact - will have mental health issues at some point in their lives.

Communication is the key, and it is important to not trivialise a constant or sudden change in somebody's behaviour around us as craziness.

Events will be held under the theme 'Young people and mental health in a changing world, ' to create awareness about mental health issues and the impact of it on general health and wellbeing.

"From a Government standpoint my Ministry is steadily moving closer towards a long term residential mental health facility that will allow persons to benefit from such treatment on island, surrounded by their family and friends", added Seymour. And let me thank you all again for everything that you are doing to support that vital mission.

Today Mrs May will announce the launch of a new campaign to train a million people in mental health awareness, starting with a pilot in the West Midlands.
