IMPORTANCE OF TREATING MENTAL HEALTH
Mental health struggles can make it difficult to meet the demands of daily life and engage with the people and activities that once brought joy and a sense of fulfillment. Symptoms can cloud judgment, undermine focus, overtake moods, and manifest in behaviors with harmful and unexpected consequences that impact one’s relationships, profession, education, and achievements. Though many mental health disorders initially onset in adolescence and the early 20s, they often go unrecognized and untreated because the mood changes and behaviors are misinterpreted as pubescent hormones and youthful growing pains. Thus many adults learn to push aside the worries, fog, panic, nausea, and emotional ups and downs - a tactic that works for some and not for others - until their emotional and mental reserves are taxed or until something gives - dropping out, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, illness, DUI/DWI, job loss, divorce, a global pandemic.
"early and comprehensive intervention can help reduce the severity of an illness and may even delay or prevent a major mental illness."
Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, social isolation or repeated relationship failure, many adults silently suffer through the early manifestations of mental health issues, expending extraordinary effort to meet everyday responsibilities; questioning their abilities; and navigating the social attribution of their symptoms to their character and worth. Even with advancements in medicine and social institutions, the stigma of a mental health disorder can still deter talented, creative, and successful individuals and their loved ones from seeking support and mental health treatment, unaware of the current research indicating that early and comprehensive intervention can help reduce the severity of an illness and may even delay or prevent a major mental illness.
