Mental Health 

 

Attitudes towards mental health in South Asian communities need to change.
Mental health is rarely discussed because it poses a “risk” to a family’s “reputation and status.” But why? … We know the South Asian culture isn’t foreign to superstition or two and as a result mental health is regarded as supernatural and demonic. They believed mental illnesses occurred to those who dabbled in black magic or were the product of a possession. Anyone associated with someone mentally ill were avoided and weren’t considered for marriage. Therefore, the solution was to brush it under the carpet or to pray. Unfortunately, these outdated thoughts are still prevalent today.

Due to the “lack of understanding, self-awareness and knowledge of psychological disorders, it has led to negative attitudes.” There are far more positives to discussing mental illnesses than there aren’t. Many mental health programmes have found that talking about mental health helps to remove the stigma, create a sense of community and reduce the rate of suicides.

Currently, “more than half of adults (60%) and over two-thirds of young people (68%) have said their mental health got worse during the pandemic. Therefore, let’s become a little more open-minded about mental health and show a willingness to listen.
