What about mental health?

Our emotional, psychological, and social well-being all fall under the category of mental health. It has an effect on our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Additionally, it influences how we deal with stress, interact with people, and make good decisions. Mental health is critical at all stages of life, including childhood, adolescence, and maturity. While the terms “bad mental health” and “mental disease” are sometimes used interchangeably, they are not synonymous. Individuals might have poor mental health without being diagnosed with a mental disease. Similarly, someone who has been diagnosed with a mental disorder may have times of physical, mental, and social well-being.

Despite improvements in some nations, individuals with mental health disorders frequently face significant infringement of their human rights, discrimination, and stigma. Numerous mental health issues can be adequately treated at a minimal cost, yet the gap between those in need of care and those who have access to care continues to be significant. 

There is an urgent need to enhance mental health awareness and stigma reduction; to extend access to high-quality mental health care and effective therapies, and to conduct research to develop novel treatments for all mental disorders and to improve existing ones both in developed and developing nations.

    Everyone deserves health care– No one should become ill and die simply because they are poor and lack access to health care. How inhumane!
