Mental health is one of the many neglected public health issues that puts people at high risk for depression, death, and other mental disorders. The amount of stigma attached to it is why the response is not up to mental health. Now, in a recent interaction with Hindustan Times, Lissun’s chief clinical psychologist Shreya Malik revealed that progress has been made in mental health care as society becomes aware of the risks of ignoring emotional imbalances and behaviors that affect the way on which a person lives.
The psychologist reveals that the world is becoming more aware of the situation, but the response to it is still a bit slow. Shreya Malik said: “Mental health issues are being addressed mainly worldwide. Research suggests that about 14% of the global burden of disease is attributed to psychiatric disorders. In this way we bring the demand for facilities and awareness into society. There are advances in mental health that are now available around the world, with increasing awareness. But acceptance for it is still growing slowly.”
She went on to say that there are a plethora of barriers and hurdles that often cause confusion and that is why people make the mistake of ignoring some serious issues. However, the registered awareness and acceptance of mental health on a global level helps people avoid mistakes. She added: “Multiple barriers are a barrier to looking seriously at the mental health lens, often causing individuals to make mistakes as they interact with themselves and others around them. This growth phase is an opportune time to rethink the mental health paradigm.” explore to avoid mistakes as you deal with them.”
During the same interaction, Malik also highlighted seven factors that people neglect and that can become a big problem later on.
Keeping your body sleep-deprived can hinder their psychological functioning. Maintaining a healthy sleep pattern is necessary to reduce stress and give the body the rest it deserves.
Social media acts as an escape for people to a virtual place that is far away from reality. People mindlessly scroll through social media apps, which is one of the main causes of anxiety.
Instead of turning to mental health experts, many also tend to google their symptoms to determine their health disorder. Malik states that it is essential that a person visits an expert for help.
Neglecting Negative Patterns
The psychologist claims that many notice the emotional changes and negative behavior patterns, but don’t make a point of being open about it.
Viewing mental health as a taboo
People who believe that mental health is taboo also tend to demotivate others about the issue. The health professional recommends that it is essential to recognize the elephant in the room and seek good health for it.
Refrain from taking breaks
In the fast pace of life, it is essential to take breaks and enjoy enjoyable activities such as going on vacation, traveling and more.
