WHY IS A MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE IMPORTANT?
Mental health disorders are negatively affecting an
increasing number of our younger generation.Approximately 12 million children below the age of 18 are victims of a
mental health illness such as ADHD, autism, anxiety and depression.
Approximately 15-20% of North American children and youth suffer from some form
of mental illness.Further, nearly 70%
of mental health disorders begin during the first quarter of a persons life.
Despite learning these shocking and disturbing facts, 60% of
people are still unwilling to seek treatment through a mental health
service.This is further aggravated by
peoples reluctance to talk about any kind of mental health disorders they
could be suffering from.These emotional
and mental health disorders can be effectively treated by psychiatrists,
therapists and psychologists.Unfortunately, facts conclude that only one in five who has such a
disorder will actually seek help.
Now is the time to end the denial and ask for help. If left
alone, these mental health disorders can move into other aspects of a persons
life and cause further harm through stress, alcohol and drug abuse, harming
oneself and eventually leading to suicide.For this reason, it would be a great benefit to actively seek assistance
from a therapist or counselor.
