What is the first thing that comes into your mind when we say ‘Illness’? There is an endless count to it. But not much will relate illness with mental health.
According to a report by WHO, there are over 300 million people worldwide suffering from mental illness. Around 8,00,000 people die due to suicide every year. Depression is considered as the main cause for suicides. In India, over 26,000 students in the country tend to suicide, which means every hour there is at least one case of the same.
India has the highest suicide rates compared to the other countries. Moreover it has been found out that there is 87% shortage in mental health professionals in the country, leading to increase in the suffering rate of the victims from ill mental health.
The subsequent age for depression is much seen among the youth of the country ageing 14-29. The level of depression is not measured appropriately until the result is out in front of everyone. Every individual however reacts differently when dealing with the depression, but as per the recent cases we hear about young children attempting suicides, the matter is now, what we feel, is out of our hands. Many people consider it a taboo for the society and ignore it the way it is. No guidance is necessary for them as many do not count it as DISEASE.
The biggest reason behind the crowd suffering from mental illness is the lack of proper mental health awareness and organizations in the country. There are only 43 governments-run mental hospitals across the country providing services to more than 70 million people living with mental disorders.
