The suicide of Robin Williams has yet again opened our eyes to the menace of depression. If we have a tummy ache or physical discomfort, then we immediately rush to the doctor. But if we are stressed out or feel anxiety we rarely seek professional help.
Why is mental health not at par with the physical health on our priority list? Anxiety is likely to be ignored as a part of the person’s personality. Anxiety and suicidal tendencies often go hand in hand. Infact, suicide is the third largest reason for death among youth in the United States.
Mental health screening is the need of the hour in today’s age. Doing pranayama and meditation on a regular basis also helps fight tension and depression.
Seek help if you feel the blues. Save your life!
