Why is Mental Health Important
Mental Health is one of the topics people have been avoiding for so long. Why? Well, we may live in the 20th Century already but still most people’s mindset when you say Mental Health still believes that means that we’re talking about a crazy individual or those who really lost their minds and can’t function well in the society.
With that mindset of the most, people who find themselves in hard times dealing with their Mental Health are forced to keep it to themselves or even try to ignore this important aspect in their life that should actually be faced head on and given priority talking about.
This Pandemic have surely shook all of our lives and added much more anxiety and stress to our already busy lives. The struggle to have a steady income and stable job have been increased drastically. With everyone being asked to stay home as part of safety measures to somehow flatten the curve of Covid-19 spread, the opportunities to find jobs have been more challenging. And while working from home can be a blessing, that thin line between work and home life have been pretty non-existent and that can cause more issues.
These challenges needed to be faced no matter what to survive. With this, the importance to pay attention to mental health is essential.
