Mental health

Hi guys,
In Vietnam, people are often less likely to admit they have problems with mental health.
How about your countries guys ?

Hi

learn_4_life your name is nice.

My country(UAE) is like yours in this subjects.

But I believe that it is widespread everywhere .And I think that because of the people sensitivity for the acceptance of the case and the difficulty of the speaking about it because it can cause the embarrassment to some then the secrecy is the easiest thing to do.

sea you later

Nice to meet ya again Mariposa.
I have read your reply and completely agree.
I think mental health differs greatly from country to country.
And this difference shows how mental health is seen differently around the world.
What do u think guys ?

I think the more severe a problem is, the more likely it is to be treated. Many people with minor mental health problems are treated, while many serious disorders are not.
This is not simply a problem of limited treatment resources. It also shows that resources are not being used well.

I think the more industrialized the country is, the more people it has with mental problems. It's because of the stress and anxiety from work and the society; therefore, seeing a therapist is commonly known.

my mental health is poor at the moment. and i'm not afraid to admit it. i think the main thing is to start seeing that there really is a problem you have to deal with. many people don't want to admit they have that kind of problems because they're ashamed. While speaking frankly about it helps... I am not seeing a therapist but I believe some day I will get rid of this nasty feeling. It's all up to the attitude....

mental health is something we all have... some of them however have it more and some less... there isn't a person who hasn't got mental health. or is it just me who thinks so?
