May 4: Every year, Mental illnesses affect about 46% of teenagers, 19% of adults, & 13% of children. Contrasting to our bodies, our cognition, mood, and emotions do not take physical shape and are hence more difficult to observe. There may be people who are struggling with their mental health in your family, workplace, or neighborhood. Yet only 50% of those affected receive treatment for the same. This is often because of the social stigma attached to mental health. Unfortunately, this stigma prevents many people from getting the help and support that they need in a timely fashion. When left untreated, mental illness can contribute to higher medical expenditure, poor performance at work or academics, lesser employment stability, and augmented risk of suicidal tendencies.
