Mental Health Awareness Month

Anxiety Image of anxious girlMay is Mental Health Awareness Month!

With the current lockdown and social isolation even people whom I know that you would consider “well adjusted” are beginning to show signs of Mental Stress an Agitation

It’s true! Even if you were already depressed and social isolation had become habitual to you. At least before this current pandemic you could go out and sit on a beach or in a park or you could go to a movie to distract yourself, you had the freedom to do all this.

And my heart goes out to you if you are one of the unfortunate people with generalized anxiety, it must me so difficult for you during this crisis.

If you have been struck by Covid 19 or have relatives or friends who have succumbed and maybe even passed away, your sorrow grief are shared by many and I offer you my personal condolences.

During this Mental Health Awareness Month it is unfortunate that the incidence of Mental Illness may increase.

However with this increase, let us hope that, when this crisis is over there will be a more compassionate and objective view of Mental Illness, and that the stigma will be removed from people who have been afflicted by it.

Let us hope that governmental and non-governmental health systems will give as much attention and equal funding to Mental Health as they do to the more ‘popular’ forms of illness such as Diabetes, Heart Disease or Cancer.

And finally, I personally invite you, the reader, to ask any question or make any suggestion about this blog. I shall do my best to respond to each one to the best of my ability.

      Thank you Shannan. Mental Health deserves as much attention from health authorities as do some of the more “popular” health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
