Over the last few decades, a lot of research and progress has been made in the field of Mental Health / Psychological Health. The healthcare sector of the world is very much aware now that Mental Health is as important and influential on a person’s life as physical health. If someone’s mental health is getting negatively affected by something, it can cripple him just much as some physical injury can.
However, even after so much progress, Mental Health discourse is still considered taboo among the majority of cultures and nations. It is considered fake or weak to express that even though someone is physically fine, their mind is withholding them from doing certain tasks.
It is also considered a sign of weakness to be going through a mental health crisis.
In all of this shaming and stigmatizing, it makes it impossible for people to reach out in times of struggle. It is especially hard for old people. Old age in itself is a disease that makes your mind as well as your body weak. On top of it, if older people are shamed into thinking they are weak for having mental health issues, it is quite destructive.
