Mental Health Issues Arise Everywhere
Technology and economic prosperity have allowed us to create an exciting, fast paced world; where people have opportunities beyond anything we might have though possible in the past. At the same time we have created a world that moves and changes so fast that many people find it difficult to cope psychologically.
Mental health may have always been an issue, but our understanding of mental health is better today than ever; and there are things that cause mental health issues today, which might not have been such an issue in the past.
A knowledge of mental health is valuable for many professions -not only psychologists and counsellors.
More people suffer from mental health issues than what most people realize; and all too often, problems we encounter in our day to day lives may be caused (at least in part), by a mental health problem. If managers and employers understand mental health, they are in a better position to identify, understand and deal with issues that may impact on the workplace. If family members understand, they are better able to support their relatives. Anyone who deals with people in their work, from health industry workers, to teachers, sales staff and others, will undoubtedly encounter people with mental health issues from time to time; and be better prepared to deal with those people if they understand what mental health is all about.
