Stress, Apprehension Not Managed, Could Leads To Mental Illness

The high economic toll of mental illness

October 7-13 is Mental Illness Awareness Week. And this is just the tip of the iceberg!

It's more than important. and you're more than worth it.

The article explained that around the world, mental health conditions cost roughly US$2.5 trillion per year, "a figure that is expected to balloon to $6tn by 2030 unless we take action". The use of alcohol among the people is too rising day by day.

However Dr Karthik K.N., a consultant psychiatrist at Sagar Hospitals, pointed out that the assumption that mental health disorders are more common in women is not entirely true.

Why? Because most people, who suffer from major depressive disorder, would rather hide their emotions than be a burden to their loved ones. If our children and youth are not mentally strong, how can we build a strong nation?

Besides, he said, parents should consider the critical issues of where they lived in relation to where they should work, and where they lived in relation to where their children should go to school. Family counselling is an unheard of concept in India. "I don't remember people talking about anxiety; I don't remember, when I was growing up, that really being a thing".

Despite this alarming scenario, mental health continues to be a taboo topic with vast stigma attached to it.

Hubble Space Telescope in ‘Safe Mode’ After Technical Disturbances
Six new gyroscopes were installed during the servicing mission-4 in Hubble made with the additional gyroscope in 2009. The Anomaly Review Board is investigating the issue further and should have a decision soon.

Athletes and staff will have access to a mental health screening programme when they join and leave the elite set-up. Many more people - one in four, in fact - will have mental health issues at some point in their lives.

Available data also indicates that the three main mental hospitals in Ghana receive more than one hundred thousand patients in a year with thirty thousand of them suffering from cannabis-induced conditions.

At the meeting, they're expected to review new research on treatment and how to tackle a set of diseases that will cost the world R240-trillion by 2030, according to a 2011 report by the World Economic Forum and Harvard University's School of Public Health in the United States. No wonder mental health schemes and mental healthcare are not so advanced in India, as in the Western world.

"Mental health is beyond any barriers of gender, status etc; it's a very personal yet quite a universal trait that anyone can experience". But on Tuesday, Gaga took her advocacy work to another level when she wrote an op-ed for The Guardian to bring attention and awareness to the worldwide mental health crisis. Mental health awareness campaigns are the need of the hour.

Lady Gaga and Adhanom closed by saying, "The two of us have taken different paths in life". The announcement follows recommendations from junior lawyers that all firms should consider appointing mental health first aiders and wellbeing champions. They need to talk freely and support their peers.

The time to begin is now.
