5 Things about Mental Health

Hi folks,

I have not written here for some time. But I wanted to write a good one.

Here is my attempt at that.

Let us talk Mental Health. What is it?

According to Wikipedia, Mental Health is like having peace with your brain; like when your mind is healthy and working well.

People who suffer from Mental health problems are referred to be having Mental Illness.

Fact 1: Look around, 2 out of 10 children have mental health issues and problems since their childhood.

Fact 2: Any kind of substance abuse- narcotics leads to such problems

Fact 3: The ones with mental illness are prone to other diseases than others. They have higher chances of getting neurological, cardiovascular and cancerous diseases.

Fact 4: Mental Illness is treatable. Yet, there is still a stigma about it. People with this illness are subject to isolation in the society. But they need the opposite- the human company is a major way of treating such patients.

Fact 5: According to WHO, around 800,000 people commit suicide every year and many times the substance abuse and mental health issues are the leading cause of such suicide cases.
