17 Mental Health Facts

17 Mental Health Facts That Every Person Should Know

By: Stan Popovich

If you or someone you love is struggling with their mental health, the first thing you need to do is to seek help from a qualified mental health professional.

I dealt with fear and anxiety for over 20 years and I talked with many mental health counselors to help get my life back on track.

As I struggled throughout my life, there were some things that I learned during my mental health struggles that may help somebody you may know.

As a result, here are 17 important mental health facts that every person should know: 

  • Getting help for your mental health problems is the best thing you can do.
  • You can’t run away from your mental health issues.
  • There is nothing wrong in asking for help.
  • Your situation is not hopeless regardless what you may think.
  • There is no such thing as a quick fix when it comes to your mental health.
  • Focus on your recovery rather than trying to please others.
  • Go to the nearest hospital if you are experiencing a mental health crisis.
  • Your mental health is just as important as your physical health.
  • You must make an effort in finding the answers to your mental health issues.
  • Focus on the facts of your situation rather than your fearful thoughts.
  • Joining a support group is a great way of finding people who can relate to you.
  • Follow the advice from the professionals rather than your friends.
  • Do not try to manage your mental health problems all by yourself.
  • Determine the source of your anxieties and then find ways to overcome it.
  • Do not make assumptions regarding your current mental health situation.
  • Do not underestimate the power of God when it comes to your mental health.
  • Learning from your past mental health experiences will help you in the present.

In addition to talking to a mental health counselor regarding your mental health issues, there is another thing that you can do to increase your chances of getting your life back on track just as I did.

Talk to somebody who has struggled with their mental health on a personal level.

People who struggle with fear, anxiety, and depression can offer valuable advice to anybody who is having a difficult time. These people “have been there” and they can talk to others about their experiences which can help a lot of people. You can find these people by joining a local mental health support group in your area. These support groups are attended by people who can offer personal insights regarding their mental health struggles.
