Many people don’t reach out when they are undergoing serious mental issues. And that is because society has stigmatized them by labeling them as ‘dangerous.’
Understandably, many mental health victims find it extremely challenging to seek help from outside, even when thoughts about self-harm overwhelm them.
But it might be the high time we became more considerate of mental health patients. Millions of people quietly suffer through their mental health issues in fear that speaking out and asking for help would be too shameful or embarrassing.
However, it is the high time we started seeing mental health issues as we see other kinds of health problems.
This change in perspective can help save many and even allow suffers to find the help they need. Mental health patients still have a place in our society, and we have no right to make them feel like they don’t belong simply because they suffer from health conditions they did not wish upon themselves.
