COVID-19, a respiratory syndrome virus that was first identified in the city of Wuhan, China has affected both the physical and mental health of people worldwide. However, people are not well aware of how important mental health is.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), mental and physical health collectively play an important role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle (Click here).
Why is it important to create awareness?
You need to take care of the people around you as well because they might be facing similar mental health issues. And you should help them by confronting them and making them aware of how crucial mental health is!
It is very important to create mental health awareness because:
- 1 out of 5 Americans (both children and adults) experience mental health issues at some time in their life
- 1 out of 25 Americans has serious mental health issues such as Alzheimer’s, major depression, mental disorders, etc.
And in this crucial time when the pandemic is here, we need to help each other by creating mental health awareness. Right?
Get Mental Therapy and Stay Healthy!
In this time when we need each other, therapy is a key to help you get out of your mental health issue. If you do not have a family member, friend, or any relative to confront you, you can consult a mental health therapist to help you out!
If you want to get mental health therapy for the peace of your mind, there are several therapists in the U.S. to explore. You can also find them at MGM Behavioral.
