Get help if you suffer from the type of mental problems that triggers feelings that life is not worth living.
The first thing that you should understand is that you are not alone and with the right help and professional intervention you can enjoy the feeling that you can make it.
You are also not alone in the fact that everyday hundreds of thousands of people – maybe even millions of people – around the world struggle with mental disorders such as depression and anxiety. Most of these people find ways to at least cope while many others find ways to be successful in the lives that they choose to live.
One of the reasons that many people don’t get help is because there is a stigma attached to mental disorders in their culture. As a result, they and their families hide their mental problems behind closed doors. In many countries – including the so-called developed countries – many families have been known to lock away and secrete from the world family members who exhibit mental problems. These people suffer a long and miserable life of agony in an age where help is just a phone call away or a visit to the local clinic. As a matter of fact, people can get help just by going on the internet and finding natural solutions to some disorders.
In some unsophisticated communities, those who suffer from disorders like depression, grief, trauma, phobias or anxiety can also get help by talking with wise elders and community healers who have apothecaries of natural medicines that can help with some mild forms of these mental disorders. Modern trained clinicians and doctors – even those whose origins are from indigenous communities – tend to dismiss the healing and therapeutic power of natural forms of healing. Their modern ‘first world’ based on their ‘modern’ ‘scientific’ medical training has all but washed their brains of the centuries old healing powers of natural forms of healing. Thus, many of them warn potential clients that they should not get help from shamans, ‘witch doctors’, and other types of natural healers.
They even suggest that sufferers should not get help using medical approaches such as alternative medicines such as hypnosis, NLP, homeopathy, acupuncture, aromatherapy, naturopathy, Reflexology, Shiatsu, Ayurvedic medicine, or energy therapy.
Clearly, evidence abounds that some of these approaches to healing work well for some people in some situations. The truth is that also in many cases, these approaches work better, with less side effects and potentially less harm than many of the Western vaulted, high price medications many of which have murky reputations among patients.
For the persons who suffer from mental disorders, they should get help anyway that they can. They should monitor their responses to any intervention – whether mainstream or traditional.
Bottom line… Get help now!
