The World Health Organization an overview

It strikes me as funny sometimes, sad and then downright makes me angry,but I can't let emotions get the best of me when a subject matter such as Mental Illness and Addiction is so prevalent in our homes and communities thought our Nations.The more research I do on the subject the more revelations I have,unless you have actually gone through the experience which I have done.many others have as well it has not been my condition in which people including myself are what is preconceived by the general public or mental health professionals but rather individuals that have a illness in which they are faced with discrimination and stigma for something that is not of there choosing.

The role of STIGMA a private responsibility,and is further reinforced by stigma.
seriously Mental ill are perceived as unattractive and frightening group of people who cannot lobby for themselves and have no one to for them because of the association.
In the absence of a unified voice the easiest response for governments is to do nothing.
participating by a user in the mental health programming and policy development is negligent
Mental health users are a extremely invisible and marginalized lot.

Barriers in developing Mental health services can be overcome if there was greater political will to achieve this advocacy,for people with mental illness, better collaboration to improve the chances.

The fact that the field of mental health is fragmented into many types distracts policy makers from the whole mental health issue,
Behavioral violence, substance abuse,suicide
Severe Psychosis
unrecognized depression/anxiety

Mental Health/Disorders
has a two way relationship with poverty
20% of children drop out of school
74% are incarcerated
it is a leading consequence of violence against women
crisis war/ natural disasters
