Hello, I agree with you that mental illness is one of the leading causes of disability as a result of daily life stresses. Massive shooting like those in Orlando, Dallas and in Charlotte may cause post-traumatic stress disorder to victims. If vAictims are not treated and counseled, it can lead to mental illnesses. Like you discussed earlier, some communities still associates mental illness with evil spirits like the Indians. There are other myths of mental illness like the gravity effect that has elevated number of deliveries occurring during an eclipse. Full moon has been connected in many cultures with an increase in epileptic seizures and suicides but there lack any scientific evidence to support it. Personally, I have never practically experienced the relationship between lunar eclipse and mental health.
Studies has revealed that those with Schizophrenia or other mental disorders display 1.8% of increased aggressive or violent episodes during full moon but non-schizophrenic individuals do not experience it (McDonald, 2001). Young adults between 18 and 25 years are the most individuals affected with depression which is the leading cause of mental illness. The common characteristics of mental health problems are thoughts processes, person’s personality, and social interactions. These problems cause wide ranges of emotional symptoms like chronic anxiety, impulsive actions, erratic thinking, changes in moods and exaggerated sense of self-worth.
As you have stated, mental illness have increased the risk of violence and suicide among these individuals. Mental illnesses have been hidden behind a curtain of discrimination and stigma and the government, society and families has a lot to do to curb the stigma. Mental illness profoundly causes financial and emotional burden to the society, families and individuals. Mental illness is treated using either or both behavioral therapy or cognitive therapy and drug prescription. The most common drugs to use while treating mental illness are mood stabilizer, antipsychotics and antidepressants. What are the signs and symptoms of mental health disorders?
