‘Insanity sometimes is the sane response to a mad society’ – R.D Liang (The anti Psychiatry Movement )
Subtle yet stumblingly debilitating is the decline in community’s mental health.This might not be talk of the town, but it’s very much happening, and its very much getting the world . With much bigger a force than we realise..
It’s rather unfortunate that we see the problem right Infront of our eyes and yet decide to ignore it.
The stigma,the society, the fear of being pointed at and left out advertises against approaching the root cause.
Everyday we see individuals,very much like you and very much like me , being a victim to brain disorders. Unfortunately this is now an occurrence, more often than ever before.
More often because today’s world is almost an ideal breeding bin for MHDs and today’s minds increasingly prone to provide a snug habitat to such.
Labelling and stereotyping of mental health, and the sufferer of it,remains a sad but stark reality. Brushing symptoms and presentations under the carpet is unfortunately considered preferable to status loss and discrimination.
We struggle and would continue to struggle, and strive and continue to strive, since it is rather high a time.
For healthy minds is a priority for us as a society , for mankind as a population and for earth as a planet .
