Dr Pinaman Appau, the Executive Secretary of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital, said although the Mental Health fraternity in Ghana had worked hard to create awareness, increase advocacy and educate the public, it failed to prioritise mental health or investment in young people.

Those wanting to help raise awareness of mental health issues can choose to wear a green ribbon, seen as the worldwide symbol for this movement.

Although suicide affects both genders, three-quarters of all suicides in 2016 in Britain were male. The statistics show that just 21% of employees receive dedicated mental health support from their employer. "There is stigma around mental illness and getting treatment for it".

Suicide is the leading cause of death among men and women aged 20-34.

In 2015 1,660 young people under the age of 35 took their own lives, which was 103 more than in 2014. Lack of transportation, housing, employment and a strong support system have a major impact on health outcomes - especially for those with mental illness - and when lacking, can make it especially hard to get proper medical care.

"We are looking to support the players as much as we can, as well as the staff, and to try and give them every possibility to speak if needs be".

"Swimming provides that choice, and if it's regularly prescribed alongside other forms of support, it could have a real impact on wider society".

Dr McCrea said: "Mental health problems do not suddenly materialise".
