Mental Health Week 2015

October 6, 2015

Do you know someone with a mental illness?

Around 20% of adults are affected by some form of mental illness every year. Nearly half 45% of the population will experience a mental disorder at some stage in their lives.

This week, sickness from the 4th – 10th of October 2015 is mental health week, cialis sale this week every year millions of people worldwide aim to raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness.

Mental Health Week brings to light the daily struggle for so many, including up to half of all people living in residential aged care, which is three times the estimated rate in elderly people living in the community.

Recognition of patient’s condition is often the first step towards getting help, too often this vital sign is getting missed and aged care residents are left to suffer in silence, their condition undiagnosed and untreated.

Aged Care Learning Solutions are focused on ensuring individual nurses and aged care providers have the highest quality resources available to provide appropriate care to our elderly.
