World Mental Health Day 2023
Depression is currently the leading cause of disability worldwide. Anxiety disorders also rank high, affecting millions of people. Conversations surrounding mental health have gained prominence. The understanding that mental health is not a privilege but a universal human right has become a rallying cry for advocates and healthcare professionals worldwide.
Mental health is not confined to a specific group or region; it transcends borders, cultures, and socioeconomic statuses. Supporting one another is a fundamental aspect of acknowledging mental health as a universal human right. It means being there for friends and family members who may be struggling, offering a listening ear without judgment, and encouraging them to seek professional help when needed. Compassion and empathy can go a long way in breaking down the barriers of stigma because we all share the same fundamental need for emotional and psychological well-being.
