Despite widespread misconceptions, common disorders such as depression and anxiety are not just bouts of “feeling blue” or irrationality. They are legitimate, treatable illnesses that can have significant real-world impact on those afflicted and the people around them. Mental health disorders are also more pervasive than you may think. One out of five people suffer from at least one form of mental illness. Due to stigma and misunderstanding regarding mental health, many people go untreated or conceal their illness out of fear of repercussions from their friends, family or employer. So, please do not neglect your mental health or allow those you love to do so. Seeking assistance can lead to positive outcomes that yield tangible improvements to quality of life.
Let’s promote a positive perspective around taking care of mental illness and work to eliminate the stigmas. Let’s stop allowing ourselves, our friends and our family to suffer in silence! Help us spread the awareness. Take a look at these additional resources for more information on mental health:
