Mental Health.. Did You Know?

Sabina Mansour (Syria)

⚠️ Out of 7.9 billion people, one billion suffer from a mental disorder. Anyone anywhere can be affected.

⚠️ Depression is a major cause of disability worldwide.

⚠️ Globally, it is estimated that 5% of adults suffer from depression.

⚠️ Globally, one in seven people (aged 10-19) suffers from a mental disorder. Half of these disorders begin by the age of 14, but most go undetected and untreated.

⚠️ One in every 100 deaths is caused by suicide. Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death for young people between the ages of 15 and 29.

. . . .

Despite all the progress the world has made in various fields, unfortunately, they are still in a "stigma" associated with psychological issues.

This stigma prevents people from recognizing the signs and symptoms of mental disorders, and because of it, they refuse to admit that they are serious disorders, like any medical disorder... That is why we always see that people do not resort to seeking help or treatment until after the situation worsens, and sometimes they can reach a dead end before thinking With the solution...

“Mental health disorders do not define who you are. They are something you experience. You walk in the rain and feel the rain, but more importantly, you are not the rain.”
