Mental Health Issues on the Rise
In a recent report, it has been revealed that the people living in cities are at a high risk of contracting mental disorders. This is due to the absolutely strained lifestyle of people in the cities. The pressures of life and the need for coping up with work and family demands is something that is suffocating the people and giving them mental problems. In a research done by the National Mental Health Survey, it was revealed that as many as one in every five people living in cities are at a risk of mental disorders.
There is need for such a plan of action to be devised by the health authorities, which can be of aid to the people in need.
"What we've seen with the development of the mental health commission is very important because through that commission we're going to be able to look at what currently might be one-off or one-year funding to see what is possible recurrently”, said Curtis Pitt, the Minister for Disability Services and Mental Health
There is need for conducting more research and awareness programs to make people aware about how they might be stressing themselves out enough to become lunatics. It is essential that one and all take a firm stand on their health, physical and mental and tend to take time off from their busy schedules once in a while.
There is also need for making people understand that if they see problems occurring in their behavior, they shouldn’t be shy of consulting a doctor in the first instance. It is essential to consult a psychiatrist, and just because you’re visiting one doesn’t brand you as a madman! One needs to get over the stigma and fight to keep sane these days.
