I: Introduction:

Mental health, along with the emotional paradigm of human beings, has acquired much significance as it plays a vital role in our daily life. Mental health is the sole effect creator regarding our attitudes, thought waves, emotional aspects and behaviour. In this context, mental health should be taken seriously as it indirectly controls our activities and their effectiveness. Immense productivity and wellness levels are directly linked with our mental health. Meanwhile, mental health also impacts the societal life in our surroundings as it matters a lot to everyone we meet in routine. In other words, one’s mental health also lasts indelible impacts on others, including family members, friends, mates, neighbors and workers etc. Good mental health is the guarantee and part of the overall health of any person. If due care is not acquired in this aspect, various troubles relating to normal life may arise. Such drawbacks may lead to stress, anxiety, depression, psychosis, and multiple behaviour disorders. Along with these, low esteem and various physiological aspects can lead to fatal circumstances.

History of the Topic:

  1. The known record of human history shows that in China, in about 1100 BC, people had some idea about mental illness (Tan et al.).
  2. In the 1700s, mental illness was believed to be a moral issue related to the deeds and beliefs of a person. Most of the time, the cure was to teach moral values and human care. In this aspect, the most favorable coping strategies were hospitalization, discussion to make a person morally good and isolation for some time (Meyer & Manuella).
  3. In the 1960s social revolution paved the way toward mental health improvement by introducing community services, medication and psychological treatment services instead of rigorous hospitalization (Meyer & Manuella).

Importance of the Topic:

Coping and addressing mental health with grim seriousness is very significant to me. Mental health affects all people of any nationality, ethnicity and age around the globe. Mental health does not bound or divide human beings into strata based on caste, creed or religion. It equally lasts indelible impacts on humans. In addition, it poses a collective effect on society in its real essence if it lacks successful treatment. However, by well mental health, we can find the best solutions to our ongoing problems.

Evidence 2:

The school staff must start mental health services for their students on priority. Such a need and urgency have increased, especially during the recent pandemic (Kern et al.).

During the pandemic phase, most people lose their motivation due to stress and mental illness. They don’t want to even deal with such a situation because of uncertainty leading to an effect on persons’ mental health (Kern et al.).

IV. Claim 3:

V. Conclusion:

In a nutshell, It can be concluded that mental health is a serious issue worldwide. It should be taken seriously as multiple effects of bad mental health may ruin one’s life. Mental health is the nucleus of all human activities and their efficiencies. Mental health disorders pose severe impacts concerning stress, depression, anxiety, demotivation and multiple bodily drawbacks.
