No matter what part of society you operate in, mental health care is one of the most ignored issues that there is.
I know this might seem like an excessive generalization, but think about it. If people are sick – even if they justhave a minor cold – they often go to the doctor. At the very least, they might take a sick day. With mental healthdisorders, however, illness is ignored until it reaches a critical level.
Basically, mental illnesses are completely acceptable as long as you can still function in your job. If youconstantly had sinus pain, congestion, and a runny nose, people would think that you were insane if you didn’t goto the doctor. Nonetheless, there are people with neurotic conditions that last their whole lives who never seekany mental health counseling.
This is why it is so important to educate people on the importance of health mental. Mental health outreach iscrucial. Everyone, from victims of torture and horrible physical abuse to people who have grown up in a fairlynormal and healthy environment, runs into a psychological issue at some point in their life. It is estimated to bepractically epidemic in our society. Depression mental health issues account for hundreds of thousands of missedworkdays every year, and suicide has become a common preventable cause of death. If you know someone who has apsychological health problem, it is important that you do everything in your power to get them into therapy.
Undiagnosed mental health problems can put an incredible strain on the patient and the community.
Unfortunately, our society has an absence of mental health support. There is emergency mental health care availablealmost everywhere, but once you’re out of that critical stage, unless you have extremely good insurance, it is hardto be covered. The philosophy is basically to give you a pill and forget about it. Back even a couple decades ago,health care mental was much better. People could get full courses of therapy to help them deal with chronic mentalhealth problems. The problem is that the pharmaceutical companies and the health care providers are more concernedwith profit than with people. It is cheaper to write out a prescription for Prozac than to actually get to the rootof a mental issue. Until our society changes its attitudes about psychological health, things will only continue toget worse.
