Things You Need to Know About Mental Health

Each year, various countries hold a mental health week. It is meant to make people more aware of what has become a huge problem worldwide, and to recognize those who are working hard to try and help combat it. Many celebrities and stars, and even some members of the UK’s Royal Family, have admitted suffering from anxiety or depression at some point in their lives, and they all agree that it is something that should be dealt with more openly.

Gone are the days where someone suffering from depression was hidden away from view. Mental illnesses are like all other illnesses in the respect that the sufferer needs care and attention, and sometimes-medical intervention.

Not everyone understands the problems though, so here are a few facts you might not be aware of.

We are All Affected To Some Degree

It is part of human nature to worry about things and to get stressed in some situations. Everyone will at some point in his or her life feel low for a while, even if it is only for a short time. This can be the start of more severe problems, such as depression, panic attacks, and anxiety. Some people will be able to get over it very quickly, but the deeper it goes the harder it is to deal with.

In Australia, for example, more workdays are lost to depression than any other illness, and these figures are reflected across several other countries, including the US and the UK.

There are specialists, such as Cynthia A Telles, who is very highly thought of throughout the medical profession. As well as dealing with patients and running specialist clinics, she is also involved in psychiatric training and research.

There is Still Stigma Attached To Mental Health Issues

There is still stigma attached to mental health issues and this is keeping barriers in the way of awareness, prevention, and care. For some people, especially older generations, they cannot seem to understand how the pressures of modern day life can make people anxious, why they have panic attacks or get depressed.

As more famous people become open about their problems, and the younger generation are following their lead, hopefully, the stigma will disappear and then it will be a much easier problem to identify and treat.

It Is A Worldwide Problem

People tend to think that mental health problems only happen in the western world. This is not true and many of the developing countries have just the same issues. In fact, research has shown that 450 million people suffer from a mental issue every year, and nearly three-quarters of those are in developing countries. This situation is made worse by the lack of knowledge and how to treat the problems in these countries, and now there are organizations that are targeting training and care in some of these places.

You Can Safeguard Your Mental Health

There are ways you can safeguard your mental health. Socializing is a great way to help, eating healthily, getting some exercise and keeping yourself physically fit will contribute to a better state of mind too.
