Mental health myths about young age people
Mental health affects everyone equally irrespective of age. It is a very wrong assumption that young people do not get affected by mental health issues.
This myth was busted by UNICEF in one of its reports. UNICEF has talked about how this serious health condition is dismissed easily citing hormonal fluctuation.
UNICEF says: Teenagers often have mood swings, but that does not mean that adolescents may not also struggle with their mental health. Fourteen per cent of the world’s adolescents experience mental-health problems. Globally, among those aged 10–15, suicide is the fifth most prevalent cause of death, and for adolescents aged 15–19 it is the fourth most common cause. Half of all mental health conditions start by the age of 14.
There is a wide gap between the diagnosis of mental health in young adults and the help that reaches them. Lack of awareness is partly responsible for this and the stigmas around mental health are responsible as well.
Mental health issues are always seen in a bad light. The person does not seek help from others with the fear of being shunned or mocked at for having an unstable mind. The myths associated with mental health are so deeply embedded in people’s minds that at times it gets difficult to say it apart from a fact.
Rates of depression and suicidal behaviour has increased among young adults.
“Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death among 15-29 year-olds”
As per a recent report by the World Health Organisation (WHO), suicide is the fourth leading cause of death among 15-29 year-olds.
The report adds that depression, anxiety and behavioural disorders are among the leading causes of illness and disability among adolescents.
It is important to address these issues and help the young adults to overcome the mental trouble so that it does not get carried forward to their lives ahead.
