Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay.
The objective of making suicide prevention the theme of World Mental Health Day in 2019 is to attract the attention of governments so that the issue might be given priority in public health agendas around the world. Since there is no specific age for one encountering issues of mental illness hence depression, anxiety, and stress have become a rampant problem among Indians.
Based on a report from the World Health Organization, depression will be the single biggest cause of ill health in the world by 2030. Since mental and emotional disturbance may gradually start showing its ill-effects on physical and societal health, founder of Srauta Wellness, Praveshh Gaur emphasised on the need of “recognising and carrying large-scale campaigns addressing the need to spread awareness, develop empathy and support towards the people who are struggling with a mental health problem.”
