Lancet which is a medical journal has published a report today by the Commision on Global Mental Health. This report was said to be launched on Tuesday on global mental health which was hosted by the UK government in London. This report shows not only increase in mental illness but also increase in early deaths, disability, and many more conditions.
In said that in India, the situation is very worse. The suicide that was occurring in the country is now on the rise and most leading cause of death among young people. The use of alcohol among the people is too rising day by day. As a result, it affects the mental health of them. It also said that the country lacks a community based mental health service centre.
The main reason behind the rise in this is a financial hardship, lack of proper education, physical illness, and shortage of basic resources as well as inability to provide basic things to the family are leading to the mental illness among the people in the country.
To minimize these things, the commission should make guidelines for it. They should set the target in such a way that they can achieve that in a short duration. The approach to the mental health must cover the full spectrum which is from day today wellness to many disabling conditions. This approach will help in minimizing the mental illness to a great extent.
