Mental health is something that most people take for granted. When I see one of them tell a person who is, say, hearing voices to not listen to their doctors and family, but to embrace the phenomena as a spiritual “gift”… well, frankly I sometimes have an urge to tear my (or their) hair out. Going the other way… from spiritual-level damage to physical/mental… is, of course, quite an esoteric topic.
Beyond keeping you out of isolation, there is another reason why acting and interacting with the people you encounter fosters improved mental health. If not attended at the right time it may lead to school failure, drug abuse, conflicts in family and even suicide.
This can often lead to difficulty shutting down the thought processes that continue to worry about the next day’s problems or schedule. From the legal perspective, a person who is mentally ill is considered not capable of taking any responsibility for their actions.
This creates stress in our mind and our body bears the brunt of it. This loss of freedom brings up a sense of fear or a sense of helplessness. Some people would mortgage their homes others would be forced to put the bill on their credit cards and still others just went without treatment.
Health can be seen as a resource for everyday life, not as the goal of life. Some other common mental illnesses also include, Alzheimer’s Disease, this is a mental disorder that affects the brain and may also cause the person to forget things, people (even family) and places.
