Why are we in a Mental Health Crisis?
For far too long, we have placed mental health on the back burner. Extensive advances have been made in discovering the causes for many conditions deemed to be physical in nature. Due to this dedicated research, we now have far better treatments for heart disease, cancer, kidney disease, diabetes, as well as other conditions and diseases. In turn, millions of lives have been saved. However, we’ve neglected one vital organ which is the one organ that controls all others. This organ is the brain, and it is where mental health conditions reside.
Where to go from here ……
There has been a significant amount of discussion on the situational and environmental factors contributing to mental health conditions. However, not nearly as much light has been shed onto the biological and genetic factors which lie at the root of these conditions. We must extend our reach, looking beyond the horizon, to explore the ‘science behind’ mental health conditions and suicide. Only when we look into the root causes of these, many times, debilitating and life threatening conditions, can we hopefully end the suffering.
