Why Mental Health Is So Important To Me!
My entire life I have been around mental health but what was to confront me fourteen years ago was a man who had been neglected by the system because of the severity of his case,
He is my best friend, and he is fit and well today. His story?
At three years old diagnosed with ADHD.
Ten years old diagnosed with Depression
Seventeen years old diagnosed with Multiple Psychotic Schizophrenia
Twenty-one years old diagnosed with Bipolar, and
Twenty-nine years old diagnosed with PTS.
Living with mental illness can cause an increased risk of homelessness, and conversely, living without a home can increase the likelihood of mental illness.- I’ve learnt from a wise man; I’ve lived with him for fourteen years.-People with mental illness are more at risk of homelessness, due to,- increased vulnerability,- difficulty sustaining employment, and- withdrawing from friends and family.-My best friend has lived it for fifty-three years.-The stress that comes with homelessness also in turn increases the risk of mental illness
He lived there for 8 years!
Living without a home can increase fear, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness and can lead to substance abuse as a coping mechanism daily- He didn’t just use! He sold it to sustain his use just to silence the noise in his head!
If you’ve been there before you will know what I mean!-Mental health affects many in the world and so many do it in silence and there is no need anymore. I now know that mental health is a nutritional deficiency. How do I now? I have lived the change with someone who still lives a life but better than he would have expected.
All it took was knowledge and a change in the way we did things with regards to nutrition.-Spare a thought today for mental health as you read this, It affects us all in one way or another….At some stage in our lives.
