What is Mental Illness ?
Mental illness, also known as mental health disorders, it is one of the most major issues of today’s young generation examples of mental illness include depression, anxiety disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders and addictive behaviour. In this new article I will shed some light on the problems associated with mental illness and lack of self-love.
To begin with, the numbers of general hospitals and the specialist doctors and nurses devoted to treating disease of our body is higher than the numbers of healthcare for the mental complexities. This is huge discrimination when world health organization clearly outlines the number of patients is rapidly increasing day by day.
Still our government is not taking any serious action towards it. Recent studies clearly showed that the global population suffers from sort of psychological issues and yet mental illness gets far less priority than it deserves.
Moreover, there is no denying that mental illness, compared to physical disease, does not get proper care and acceptance from our society and all around the world. However, solution is available to tackle these problems. I know our government, our family or our friends we should take a serious action towards ourselves. I urge you all to speak for yourself, ask yourself, what’s your name? what excites you and make your heart beat? I want to hear your voice and want to hear your conviction.
Symptoms of mental illness:
- Signs and symptoms of mental health illness can vary depending on the disorder, circumstances and other factors. Mental illness symptoms can affect emotions, thoughts and behaviours.

Now, the time has come for us to change this old dogma about psychological problems. Because still social views towards a physically sick child are always different from autistic children. But first we should talk to ourselves, no matters who you are, where you are from, your skin colour, gender identity- just speak to yourself. Let’s find our name and find our real voice by speaking ourselves.
