Why use DSBH services?

We all know that it’s very important that you take care of your body with good food, exercise, and rest. Yet we often overlook our mental health. Consider this: our mind is the one thing that controls what we think, how we communicate, what we do and how we move our body. If we neglect our mental condition, it’s very probable that everything else will decline. Some might argue that the health of our mind is even more important than that of our physical health. Yes, both are important, but we are nothing without a functioning mind. Therefore, we need to take extra steps to ensure our brain is healthy as well.

What is Mental Illness?

Our mental health is the basis for our thinking, learning, talking, and even how we feel about ourselves. It’s also key to our personal and emotional well-being, our relationships and how we contribute to our society.

Mental illness isn’t very picky either. It can strike anyone regardless of age, social status, income, gender or any other social identifier. And although mental illness can strike at any time, by the age of 24, nearly three-quarters of the population have some type of mental illness. It can take many forms. Some are mild and only have limited effects on daily life – such as phobias or, abnormal fears. While by comparison, there are still others are more severe and can require professional services and sometimes care in a hospital.

In our current society, most people who have a mental illness don’t want to discuss it and try to hide it from family, friends, and others because they are afraid of rejection or don’t want to be the topic of discussion. While, in fact, most people aren’t aware that mental illnesses are medical conditions – like diabetes or other physical diseases. We also have a tendency to fear what we don’t understand. We can even try to hide our mental illness from our self under the flag of denial.

Can mental illness be treated?

Absolutely!  Therefore, mental illness is nothing you need to be ashamed of. Besides, doctors and researchers are continually making strides in our understanding of how our brain works. The benefits from mental health services provide you with a happier life experience.

 

If mental illness is a medical problem like diabetes, then it should be nothing to be ashamed of.
