Mental Health Perceptions
Seeking medical help for mental health conditions is often associated with a variety of negative stereotypes. Mental illness is still a taboo in our society and around the world, This discourages those affected by them to get the proper treatment that they deserve.
Apart from the social constructs, medical professionals, doctors, and physicians don’t necessarily take mental health concerns as seriously as physical ailments. This also contributes toward psychological health being largely ignored. The jokes, memes, and misinterpretation of facts pertaining to mental health conditions also severely diminishes its importance in society.
