Mental Health : Understanding the silent predator of health

mental health problem and disorder
One of the emerging disorders, the upcoming generation has started witnessing is still the most lightly taken subject of all.
Mental Health has been something which has been considered either too taboo to be talked about or too casual to be paid attention.
Whatever be the cause of our deliberate ignorance,this silent predator has taken an entire population by storm.
Mental health or in layman’s term “peace of mind ” has become more of an extinct concept. Fast pacing millennials , ultra stressful lives ,disruption of sleep pattern, deteriorating inter-human interactions has led the youngsters to a monotonous mental outlook shaping in the form of fierce mental disorders.
Let us understand the concept through an example.
Depression is a major mental health disorder. It is emerging in the population at one of the fastest pace any disorder can emerge yet the irony is, people hardly talk about it or give it a chance to be cured deeming it too casual to be talked about. So much worse is the condition that depression which is growing like an enormous tumour among the young population has led to extreme measures such  as suicide and self mutilation.
People like these are also shunned from the society. And sometimes even parents fail to understand the cause and term it as the incapability of the child and thus resorting to excuses.
Any disease which deters the well being of one’s  mental constitution is fatal because in such diseases medication provides relief only to some extent mainly focusing on the curbing of symptoms.
It is high time now that people understand the root and lend an empathetic ear to all those who suffer from such mental disorders and support them in every way possible.
