World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day



World Mental Health Day 2018
Celebrated during the​ 10th of​ October,​ mental health day is​ an international educational campaign which aims to​ extend knowledge on​ mental health to​ unaware people. For the​ first time in​ 1992,​ it​ was observed by the​ World Federation for Mental Health as​ an annual activity.
Each celebration of​ this global event holds a​ theme that aims to​ focus the​ concerns of​ the​ World Federation for Mental Health on​ specific problems.
For this years theme,​ the​ organizers chose to​ make mental health issues a​ global priority,​ after all mental health is​ an international concern. it​ is​ known for a​ fact that not only Americans,​ Canadians or​ other highly industrialized citizens experience the​ problems caused by mental health. Mental disorders do not choose their victims. They occur in​ all cultures,​ in​ all ages and on​ both sexes.
The sad thing though is​ that there is​ too little attention being given in​ helping people with mental health. We,​ Americans,​ are lucky because our government,​ our health authorities and many other organizations are tying up to​ mobilize the​ causes for assisting people with mental health. However,​ even our current efforts are not enough. in​ many countries though,​ in​ fact in​ almost all countries in​ the​ world,​ mental health is​ being given too little concern. This is​ aggravated by lack of​ funds,​ by lack of​ facilities and by lack of​ nearly all the​ resources required to​ advance the​ causes associated with mental health.
For this year,​ the​ World Federation for Mental Health made it​ a​ point to​ seek everyones concern in​ battling mental health. This is​ done through strengthening services and the​ participation of​ the​ citizens.
Also,​ WMHDAY 2018 will highlight the​ present needs of​ people with mental health and the​ developments of​ present methodologies,​ treatment options and management of​ mental health. Advocacy is​ the​ key and this years aim is​ to​ integrate the​ sense of​ advocacy to​ all people so that change could be feasible. WMHDAY 2018 also advocates that solving mental health issues could also be facilitated by feeding the​ right information to​ all kinds of​ people by providing reliable resources.
Its time for the​ world to​ listen. Through this years team,​ we could eliminate the​ stigma and discrimination people with mental disorders feel. Through right public information,​ people who don’t suffer with such disorders would understand their suffering counterparts and could help them improve their lives. And through the​ supply of​ right information for the​ unaware public,​ they could share their lives to​ those people with mental health disorders.
Enough for the​ clucking of​ tongues after a​ miserable event happened caused by,​ say,​ a​ mentally ill individual. Enough with the​ daily pains people with mental disorders experience because the​ public does not have sufficient knowledge on​ the​ nature of​ their disorders. Enough with the​ unjust treatment to​ these distressed individuals. They need help,​ not discrimination. Support not stigma.
We always hear it​ in​ the​ news. a​ father killed his family and killed himself after. a​ teenage killed his peers and turned the​ ​gun​ against him and killed himself afterwards. a​ mother killed her children and got sent to​ a​ mental institution. Why do we always have to​ wait for something to​ happen before we take action?
Why don’t we listen to​ the​ painful sufferings of​ the​ mentally ill individuals now and provide them the​ proper services they need and deserve? World Mental Health Day 2018 sponsors subtly the​ belief that the​ world would be a​ better place if​ only we can understand and help people with psychological disorders.
