Mental Health and Depression

It’s undeniable that we are now in the era of fast-paced evolution of technology. Being connected in social media has rapidly increased than being connected in real life. We live in a society where likes and dislikes on social media are the status symbol of being accepted in the society. This kind of acceptance has affected the overall mental health of an individual. Though there are many factors that affect one’s mental health, the uncontrollable toxicity gathered in the advanced technology of social media has been the number one cause of unstable mental health and depression.

What is Mental Health and how can we help you?

According to the recent statistics in 2017, about 11.2 million adults or about 4.5% of the population in the US had a severe psychological condition. As also stated of the World Health Organization (WHO), “Mental health is a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.” With these information gathered from reliable sources, it has been proved that mental health is vital in one’s health.

Mental Health refers to the behavioral, cognitive, and emotional well-being of a person. We concentrate on the guiding of how people think, feel, and behave in their daily lives. We don’t just diagnose everyone right away of their expected condition but rather follow the process in treating one. We see to it that each individual is being heard to voice out the reasons of distress and anxieties. We ensure to value the balance between life activities, commitments, and efforts to achieve individual psychological resilience during sessions of therapy.
