Need more psychological health clinics
How often do we come across awareness campaigns about disassociate disorders, bipolar disorders? Making people aware of patients who hallucinate due to their mental illness isn't an easy task. It isn't as palatable, or maybe as widespread as depression or anxiety. But they exist. Albeit necessary -- as every word, video, and article is the cog for policy-makers and authoritative bodies to get moving -- beginning the conversation about mental health isn't nearly enough. Mental trauma, and the end results of such, will not wait for us as a society to understand the importance of mental wellbeing. Even for the middle and upper-middle class, options are limited. There are only a handful of psychological health clinics with certified and competent doctors who are willing to take mental illness seriously. And the fees are exorbitant. Therefore, government should invest more to build psychological health clinics to provide more services to whom who need it.
