Mental health issues are the leading concerns in the modern life.
The harsh realities of life and everyday life’s stress affect everyone’s life quality. But it significantly hurts the ones who are also struggling with mental health issues. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), one in every five individuals suffers from mental health issues in post-conflict settings.
Depression is one of the most dangerous diseases. It includes depressive mood withdrawal from the activities for an extended time. If left untreated, it can take its severe stages and can lead to suicide.
Early treatment, medication, and therapy can prevent extreme measures. Mental health awareness can educate everyone on the dangers of depression and encourage individuals to reach out and seek mental health from professionals.
If you are suffering from mental health issues, please reach out and get help. If you notice someone with the symptoms, encourage them to be brave and seek help. Many individuals struggle to get help due to the stigma attached to mental health issues.
The road to healing can be challenging. It can be hard for someone to get out of bed in the morning and carry out daily tasks, but it can be achieved with little encouragement, medications, and therapy.
