The need for Mental Health Awareness
is more apparent than ever before. Awareness means recognizing that people not
only need to be mentally healthy but that they need to be able to recognize the
difference between the lack of mental health and the process of creating
improved mental health.
society, already stressed over inter-and intrapersonal issues, would benefit
from an awareness of mental health. Cultivating this awareness could help
people avoid the consequences of untreated anxiety, untreated depression, and
clearer a person’s thought process, the more opportunity he or she has to deal
with and grow beyond the stresses. The process thus shifts from coping with
stress to transcending stress. In summary, focusing on Mental Health Awareness
can help transform a perception of emotional deprivation and vulnerability into
a perception of emotional prosperity and effectiveness.
