“We know that mental illness is not something that happens to other people. It touches us all. Why then is mental illness met with so much misunderstanding and fear?” Tipper Gore

Motivation Mondays: World Mental Health Day – Impacts Us All

The theme of this year’s World Mental Health Day, observed on 10 October, covers “psychological first aid” (PFA). Efforts in support of the day will focus on basic pragmatic psychological support by people who find themselves in a helping role whether they be health staff, teachers, firemen, community workers, or police officers. World Health Organization
Mental health needs a great deal of attention. It’s the final taboo and it needs to be faced and dealt with. Adam Ant
Self-esteem is as important to our well-being as legs are to a table. It is essential for physical and mental health and for happiness. Louise Hart

Did you know that today is World Mental Health Day and Columbus Day? While the jury might still be out on whether Columbus discovered the Americas, what is certain is that Mental Health issues affect us all; even though, it remains a subject that some would like to sweep under the table or wish away by shaming those who live with it. According to the CDC, mental illness can be described as “collectively all diagnosable mental disorders” or “health conditions that are characterized by alterations in thinking, mood, or behavior (or some combination thereof) associated with distress and/or impaired functioning.”2 Depression is the most common type of mental illness, affecting more than 26% of the U.S. adult population.3...” On any given day, we, our friends, and any of our loved ones are at risk of facing an emotional, psychological or social stressor that could impact our mental health, our overall feeling of well-being,  and push us to the brink. How those around us handle the episode can make a difference between life and death.

Are you prepared to offer compassionate support? As we all strive to maintain some form of equanimity or balance in our lives, and the lives of our friends and family, we need to be attentive to shifts in mood and behavior. If we make a concerted effort to check in regularly with our loved ones, it will be easier to recognize when a family member or friend has crossed that delicate balance and is in need therapeutic and psychological support. If you’ve ever lived with someone with mental illness, you’d know that a lot of thoughtful care and consideration must be exercised to get them the help and critical attention they need. When they are going through a down period, we must step in and advocate for them and there is nothing shameful about it.  The real shame is in the stigma that uninformed people attach to it.

“Mental health is often missing from public health debates even though it’s critical to well-being.”  Diane Abbott

What is PFA? – Pragmatic Tools
Humane, supportive & practical assistance to fellow human beings who recently suffered a serious stressor:
•Non-intrusive, practical care and support
•Assessing needs and concerns
•Helping people to address basic needs (food, water)
•Listening, but not pressuring people to talk
•Comforting people and helping them to feel calm
•Helping people connect to information, services and social supports
•Protecting people from further harm via WHO/PFA
Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all. Bill Clinton

How would you handle a mental health crisis for a loved one? Whether we are directly or indirectly affected by mental illness, it is imperative that we spend time reflecting on how we can help in an honest and meaningful way. One thing that is clear is  while approaches to handling mental health situations vary, addressing the complex issues around it with sensitivity is key because each of us come to the subject from different backgrounds and experiences.  It’s a delicate topic that affects millions of households and we can’t address it by offering a cute picture or a bold statement as a panacea for a condition that impacts so many, many lives. Over the years, I have lost people close to me to this crisis, and when I think about their pain and suffering, and the lingering sense of loss felt by those left behind, I know that we must do more.  All I ask is that we take a moment each day to remember that the face of mental illness is all of our faces,  It is you, you, and me because we know people close to us or others in our community who struggle with this disease.  By the same token, we are affected through our interactions  by the fallout and the daily challenges that those who struggle with mental illness face.

What about Psychological First Aid?  The World Health Organization has recommended that in addition to recognizing the theme for 2016 which is: Psychological First Aid “psychological first aid” (PFA). Each of us can offer support by employing the pragmatic tools listed above and in the pdf as a way to assist those in a mental health crisis. As fellow citizens, we can play a pivotal role by offering a calm hand and immediate comfort to someone in a mental health crisis while reaching out to professionals who are qualified to assist them. There are no easy solutions on how we can/must deal with mental health issues, however, shaming, blaming or escalating the situation for the individual is the wrong path to take. Even if you don’t agree with the many therapeutic options available to people with mental health issues, it is not for us to decide for them. Our role should be supportive, to look out for the well-being of the individual, and to focus on serving in a helping capacity until professional/medical assistance arrives.

“The problem with the stigma around mental health is really about the stories that we tell ourselves as a society. What is normal? That’s just a story that we tell ourselves.”  Matthew Quick

Motivation Mondays: World Mental Health Day - Impacts Us All

Motivation Mondays: World Mental Health Day – Impacts Us All

A desire to be in charge of our own lives, a need for control, is born in each of us. It is essential to our mental health, and our success, that we take control. Robert Foster Bennett
We need so much more openness, transparency and understanding that it’s OK to talk about depression as an illness. It’s not a weakness. It’s not a shortcoming. It’s not something people brought on themselves. John F. Greden MD
Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we’re scurrying to and from appointments and errands, we don’t have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list. Michelle Obama

 

What more can we do on World Mental Health DayWe can start by educating ourselves on the subject of mental health and mental illness, and learn more about the clinical definitions and diagnosis of the illness. We can help by resisting the temptation to paint a broad and sweeping picture of what it means and how it ought to be handled. Each case needs professional evaluation and specific treatment geared to the individual. Our role is to support and lift the lid of shame, to work at ensuring we provide a positive environment that nourishes the overall well-being of our family/friends, and to lift the stigma of mental illness that makes this a very painful issue. Mental illness can have a lasting impact on all of us/our loved ones so, making the effort to find adequate care is very important.  What are your thoughts?

Have a healthy week ahead!

    Beautiful article. FYI… not just Columbus Day any more. Here in most cities Washington state it is now Indigenous People’s Day and throughout the country more cities are transitioning to Indigenous Peoples Day. However, as a nurse I see how mental health patients literally get thrown away. It’s sad… so I truly appreciated this article. 😊 thank you!

      Thank you for your reply and for your insider view on the subject of mental health… we all can do better to help spread the word. <3 As for Indigenous People's Day, it makes perfect sense as the right title for the celebration.

      Thank you for taking a moment to consider the topic on this important day. Sadly, some people prefer to remain clueless about a subject that affects all of us in someway. Changing the topic or ignoring it doesn’t change the facts; when people respond that way, they are just perpetuating the stigma about a critical and life long disease. Thank you for your thoughtful response. We need to break the stigma! 🙁

    I was not aware that there even was a Mental Health day–I am very glad to hear there is. Too many people have problems and really are shunned because of it–when instead they should be gently directed to get the help they desperately need to live a full and happy life.

    • 10/10/2016 11:43 pm

      Indeed. The more all of us learn to be supportive and proactive in encouraging folks around us to seek professional care, the sooner we will experience a reduction in cases that end tragically.

    I have suffered from a brief separation anxiety following my parent’s break up when I was 7 years old. Looking back, I feel lucky to have snapped out of it. The experience was more frightening after I knew what exactly happened to me. Also after worked as a student nurse in the Mental facility here, that I realize most people don’t get back to normal like I did.

    Back then I only experience being spaced out 100% of the time I was in school, I would see people around me, my teachers and classmates but I cant seem to hear them. I was snapped out of it after I was transferred to another school a year after. The new school was noisy being coed and all, so the effect on me was scary, because I went home still hearing the voices of the kids in school, when I shut my eyes and cover my ears with my pillow, I’d see the faces of my classmates. I tried to tell my family but when my grandma smirked and told me I’m just imagining things,

    I knew I had to be strong and battle it on my own. So I did by gradually forcing myself to interact, and thank God, it wasn’t long before I finally became normal again. Mental illness whether temporary or clinical should be a big concern to all. We all are susceptible and it’s only a matter of intensity that a single ugly experience could cause us to be mentally unwell for a while or for good. Fortunately for me it only lasted a few months.

    • 10/10/2016 11:42 pm

      Indeed. It is experienced in so many different ways that we can never use one person’s experience as a treatment for another person. I’m grateful for you that you found a path out of the depression…

    I have been on such a learning curve with mental health issues this last year as my father deteriorates from Alzheimer’s. Somehow Alzhiemer’s makes it easier to understand the organic nature of mental illness, it is easier to see that the emotional fallout has a brain issue at it’s root. I hadn’t fully grasped that before.

    I really like how you come up with a view of a compassionate help for those people or for people that we personally know to help them and don’t avoid them.

    Mental health is so important. We are subjected to various stress everyday Sometimes these come from our very own home. We need to be able to deal with stress in such a way that we won’t go out of our minds. It is not easy to do this all the time. We need our sounding boards to deal with the stress.

    I’ve struggled with agoraphobia my whole adult life. No amount of medication or therapy has helped. The patient help and understanding of my family is a great balm, though. Mental illness runs in my family and I do believe in genetic components. My aunt has schizophrenia. My oldest son has autism. My youngest has ADHD and both of them suffer with depression. I’ve seen the very real impact this has on lives. Thank you for raising awareness.

    What breaks my heart about mental illness is the number of support that these people are not getting. They don’t take mental illness seriously because it’s not physically visible like other diseases and we end up losing a life because of that. They need all the help and support and love that we can give.

    Mental Health Illness affects so many, my sister was raised all messed up. The issues I went through with her sucked (only word I can think of) as a young adult she tried to commit suicide and then when in the mental hospital they dx her bipolar. Now she still struggles but I am glad that they figured it out so maybe someday she can be a bit more level headed and get help she needs. Mental Health Illness runs deep in my family and it’s sad that so many look at it in a negative light and there isn’t a ton of help for people who suffer from it.

Some days are challenging. I do the best I can to stay focused and not let it get the best of me. My husband is also very supportive. I think that the more the general public are educated on mental health issues, the more supportive they will become. I tell my kids all the time to be more aware of other people’s feelings and if they have a mental illness. Really great post!

    The resistance of some to see a mental health professional is proof enough that mental health is not taken seriously. I buried my best friend, mentor and cousin to depression 3 years ago. Every time I state her cause of death to someone who wants to know – I always get a feeling that if eye-rolling made noise it would be deafening. They just don’t believe it.

    Along the lines up there for “compassionate support”, I’ve seen family members fail that part many times. This reminds me of a certain someone who isn’t blood-related that came to our aid and was an infinite source of emotional support. Mental illness is serious and should not be treated casually with our usual “tips and advice”, you need to understand what’s behind the curtain.

    Thanks for sharing awareness, 26% is so big.. Supportive,loving and happy friends could definitely lessen the risk of depression, I hope those who have such problems could open up more.

    I’d like to think I am prepared to give compassionate support but informing myself is still important!
