It's World Mental Health Day! This day is about mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigmas. It’s to bring attention to mental illness and its major effects on peoples’ life. Mental illness includes many different conditions that can vary in degree of severity, ranging from mild to moderate to serve.
Here are some reasons why talking about mental health is so important:
- More people are impacted than we may think. One in five adults will experience a mental health issues at least once in a given year. Everyone is impacted by mental illness in some way or another, whether they are personally struggling or they know someone who does, but when it comes to understanding these illnesses, we often fall short.
- We need to increase awareness. Talking about mental issues can help those struggling realize they are not alone and that they are not the only one who feels the way they do. For those who are not affected by mental illness firsthand, the conversation about mental illness can help inform them about the risk factors, symptoms, treatments, and prevention methods, which will allow them to help the people around them.
- Eliminating the stigma. The stigma towards mental illness often causes people to feel isolated, stereotyped, shameful, or discriminated against, all of which can hinder recovery. The more people openly discuss mental illness, the easier it is to do so. One conversation can start a chain reaction of conversations, which then will eliminate the social stigmas.
